Contributions to Political Parties
In keeping with our commitment to engage responsibly with the communities in which we operate, we have a stand-alone Political Contributions Policy that sets clear parameters and limitations for when and how political contributions are to be made for, or on behalf of, Goldcorp. This global policy prohibits any kind of political contributions outside Canada or the United States of America. The policy also details strict corporate-level approvals, including by the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and the Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability. Additional validations from Legal and Ethics and Compliance are required in those instances where political contributions may be allowed as per the policy. In 2016, we made contributions to political parties and related groups in Canada of approximately CAD$119,330. No such contributions were made in other countries of operation.
