Independent materiality assessments are conducted to identify the most important environmental, social and governance issues for key external and internal stakeholders. We use this input to help prioritise sustainability actions, inform our sustainability strategy and ensure we report on the issues that are most important to our stakeholders.
A broad range of sustainability issues are considered that are common to both local and global mining operations using peer and industry benchmarking of topics. These were analysed against international standards and guidelines, such as the GRI topic-speciﬁc disclosures and the SDGs. Results from ESG Surveys (ie CSA SAM, MSCI) are considered to incorporate investor input into the assessment.
