Materiality Analysis

At Goldcorp, we know that only by understanding the economic, environmental and social impacts that matter most to our business, to our stakeholders and to society at large, can we focus on realizing our vision: Together, Creating Sustainable Value.

In 2016, we built on the materiality analysis conducted in 2015, and engaged additional stakeholders in order to better understand and target our sustainability priorities. A materiality analysis is a strategic review of the topics that have a direct or indirect impact on an organization’s ability to create, preserve or erode economic, environmental and social value for itself and its stakeholders.

For the purpose of this report, we use the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) definition of materiality: “Those topics and indicators that reflect the organization’s significant economic, environmental, and social impacts or that would substantively influence the assessments and decisions of stakeholders.” These material topics can have a significant financial impact and are also relevant for stakeholders who focus on our financial results.
