We never stop searching for ways to operate more responsibly and to demonstrate innovation in social and environmental sustainability.
It is incumbent on all mining companies to find ways of operating responsibly, and to demonstrate social and environmental responsibility in credible and consistent ways. We have learned at our Tsumeb smelter that there is a symbiotic relationship between the economics of the business and demonstrating social and environmental responsibility. These disciplines cannot be managed separately.
Operating responsibly has many facets, including maintaining strong relationships with our stakeholders and minimizing harm to the environment. It also includes ensuring that our employees are treated well, that they go home to their families safe and healthy, and that we strive to build sustainable communities that will survive long after mine closure.
Since 2011, we have produced an annual report of our sustainability performance and have demonstrated that we are a true leader in this field. For example, at our Chelopech operation we have consistently reduced energy use, water use, and emissions intensity.
We have made great strides in developing a formidable local workforce at all our sites. Local nationals account for almost 100% of our workforce and 86% of manager level and above positions.
We continue to invest in our communities and believe we have good and strengthening relationships with our local leaders. Our corporate wide community investment policy focuses our community spending toward local development, based on dialogue with local leaders. Our Krumovgrad project will be a model of best practice social and environmental management, and will serve as a demonstration of our commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
