Environment, Health and Safety

Environment, Health and Safety are the cornerstones of our Sustainability commitment. Innovative programs in EHS have made us leaders in land management, emissions management, recycling, energy and resource conservation, and workplace safety.


We believe zero Fatal and Serious Injuries (FSI) are possible. Our safety culture strive to reduce incidents by improving controls.


Our current target is a 30% reduction in carbon dioxide equivalent intensity by 2020 and 35% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline.


Our current goal is a 10% reduction in our energy intensity by 2020 and 15% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline.


Our current strategic target for landfilled waste is a 75% reduction by 2020 and 100% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline.


Our global goal is a 25% reduction in average freshwater intensity by 2020 and 30% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline.

Land Management

We have targeted minimum environmental footprints for each mine to achieve by 2020. Three of our mines that were active in 2015 have already achieved their minimum environmental footprint.
