At Goldcorp, responsible mining is a company-wide commitment that’s at the core of every business decision we make. Every one of us, from senior management through the work crews at each of our operations, strives to conduct our business to ensure lasting social progress and economic growth for all stakeholders throughout the life of a Goldcorp mine and well beyond.
We are committed to being responsible stewards of the environment and to maintaining the highest health and safety standards possible. We are tireless advocates of human rights and maintain a principled, conscientious approach to corporate citizenship.
We call our approach to doing business “Sustainable Prosperity.” Our programs are designed as catalysts for positive, lasting contributions in the communities where we do business, while working in partnership with host governments, Indigenous groups, non-governmental organizations, contractors and suppliers.
We design, construct and operate all our facilities in accordance with the highest applicable health, safety and environmental standards. Our employees are provided with the tools and training required to minimize the effects of our activities on the environment. We actively seek partnerships based on open, transparent communication, with the aim of being Responsible, Respected and Welcomed, everywhere we do business.
“Our key performance indicator with respect to responsible mining is that the communities where we work are better off. With mutually beneficial, respectful relationships, we serve our key business objective, which is to be welcomed into a community to mine gold.”
