FutureSmart MiningTM: Our blueprint for the future of sustainable mining
Mining must transform in the decades ahead, starting now.
Our industry has to address its critical challenges of safety, productivity and the use of energy and water.
The global population of consumers is soaring. This indicates a greater demand for minerals and metals. But modern society rightly demands more than just high product quality. It expects the mining industry to make a positive contribution to socio-economic development while reducing its environmental footprint and supporting biodiversity.
To meet this challenge, we have applied our FutureSmart MiningTM approach to the development of what we believe will be an industry-leading Sustainability Strategy.
Developed through extensive internal and external engagement and analysis of critical opportunities and risks, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals, our sustainability strategy is built around three global sustainability pillars.
- Trusted Corporate Leader
- Thriving Communities
- Healthy Environment
Our strategy’s mutually reinforcing elements will positively transform how our stakeholders experience our business, both locally and globally. The strategy is underpinned by a number of critical foundations. These common, minimum standards will be applied across our whole business.
