Strategy & Governance: Our Priorities

Effective Oversight
Effective Oversight

At Goldcorp, our values are reinforced through good governance and strong leadership.

Sustainability is overseen by the Board’s Sustainability Committee, which reviews and monitors policies and activities related to sustainable development, environmental, health and safety. All members of the committee are independent.

Our company structure integrates sustainability into how our business operates – dedicated business segments, executives and employees manage all aspects of sustainability including, corporate social responsibility, people, diversity, safety, health and the environment, and all aspects of mine closure.

We make all major investment decisions using our Global Investment Framework, which includes an assessment of the environmental and social impacts of every investment.

Supply Chain Management

Sourcing high quality goods and services at the lowest price is essential to our competitiveness. But the task for Goldcorp doesn’t end at price. Every purchase is evaluated against a long list of priorities, including compliance with labour practices, human rights, ethics, anti-corruption and safety standards. We also evaluate vendors based on how innovative they are in suggesting ways to improve how we use their products.

The Supply Chain Management team’s work is central to our adherence to the World Gold Council’s Conflict-Free Gold Standard, which provides assurance that our actions don’t contribute to human rights abuses or breach international law.
