We participate in external third-party performance benchmarking initiatives and sustainability related assessments, including environment, social and governance (ESG) ratings agencies, proxy advisor questionnaires and data collection tools. Results of these assessments inform our planning for continuous improvement.

During FY21, we continued to respond to individual requests for information on our sustainability approach and performance from investors and other stakeholders and responded to, or participated in:

  • ISS Governance, Environmental and Social Disclosure Quality Score
  • MSCI
  • S&P Global
  • Sustainalytics

Recognition

United Nations Global Compact

Evolution was proud to become a signatory of the UNGC in FY21, joining the global business community in a commitment to sustainable business practices, aligning our strategies with the UNGC’s Ten Principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption, the United Nations SDGs and related 2030 SDG targets. Our Sustainability Principles all align with the UNGC Principles and SDGs.
Australian Council of Superannuation Investors
In FY21 the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors assessed Evolution’s level of sustainability disclosure as being at a ‘Detailed’ level within the mining sector. We are pleased with this rating and aim to improve from a ‘Detailed’ to a ‘Leading’ rating in the near future.

MSCI

A high rating of AA (on a scale of AAA-CCC) was achieved in FY21 in the MSCI Ratings assessment, scoring 5.7 compared to the industry average of 4.4, an 18%improvement compared to 2020. We were placed among the top five industry leaders for Health and Safety, Labor Management and Corruption and Instability.

S&P Global CSA SAM
In August 2021, a score of 51 was achieved, a 19% increase from 2020 (industry average of 39). Evolution is one of only two gold companies on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index – Australia.

A significant improvement in our ISS score in the ‘Social’ category from ‘8’ to ‘4’ was achieved (scale from 10-1 with “1” being the highest possible rating). This was supported by the publication of our Modern Slavery Statement and Supplier Code of Conduct.

Memberships and Industry Associations

Involvement with memberships and industry associations enables us to keep current regarding matters of public policy, emerging sector and sustainability trends, regulatory updates, stakeholder interests and the sharing of industry best practices. We may not align with every element of an association’s public position, but where we believe there is a benefit in constructive dialogue or advocacy, we will maintain our membership.
