The objective of our sustainability and strategic planning efforts is to deliver long-term stakeholder value through safe, low-cost gold production in an environmentally and socially responsible way.
By enabling innovative thinking, setting the strategic direction and goals for the business to drive value creation and establishing clear direction, authority and accountability to act to those at the source of the risk through our devolved leadership model will build a culture of operational excellence.
The requirements of this company-wide policy and its supporting Sustainability and Strategic Planning Standards applies to all directors, employees, business partners and their subsidiaries.
