Water

Water is one of our most important sustainability issues. Learn how we work to manage water responsibly, including protecting water quality, collaborating with communities on fair use of water, and improving our water use efficiency.

Water and our Sustainability Strategy

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

Strategic Priorities:

  • Transition to seawater or low-quality water sources for all operations in water-scarce regions by 2040
  • Implement innovative water management and water treatment solutions to protect water quality downstream of all our operations
     

Goals:

  • By 2025, design all development projects in water-scarce regions with a seawater or low-quality water source.
  • By 2025, implement new source control or mine design strategies and water treatment systems to further advance efforts to manage water quality at our operations.
