Communities and Indigenous Peoples

From exploration through operation and closure, we seek to build strong relationships with communities and Indigenous Peoples and create lasting benefits.

Community and our Sustainability Strategy

Communities and Indigenous Peoples is one of our eight strategic themes along with: health and safety, climate change, our people, water, tailings management, responsible production, and biodiversity and reclamation. Our sustainability strategy has long-term strategic priorities and shorter-term sustainability goals.

Strategic Priority:

Collaborate with communities and Indigenous Peoples to generate economic benefits, advance reconciliation efforts and improve community well-being

Goals:

  • Increase local employment and procurement opportunities by 2025 to deliver direct economic benefits to communities.
  • Achieve greater representation of Indigenous Peoples across our business by 2025 by increasing employment and procurement through business development, capacity-building, education and training opportunities. 
  • Deliver positive social, economic and environmental outcomes for communities and Indigenous Peoples by contributing $100 million to community organizations and global initiatives, including our Zinc & Health and Copper & Health programs, by 2025.
