At Kinross, outstanding corporate citizenship is a core value. These 10 principles define what “doing the right thing” means to us and are central to how we conduct our business.
Principle 3: We promote an ongoing dialogue and engagement with stakeholders in the communities where we operate, maintained in a spirit of transparency and good faith.
Our stakeholders represent a broad and varied community, embracing all those who are affected by the actions Kinross takes, or who can affect Kinross by their actions. Engagement with that broad community comprises a major part of our day-to-day activities and takes many different forms - from formal presentations to investors, to consultations with a non-governmental organization (NGO), to regular meetings with community stakeholders, to one-on-one conversations with our neighbours. Engagement with our stakeholders begins during exploration and continues through the life of our operations, including mine closure. Through open and transparent engagement with our stakeholders we seek to build cooperative relationships based on mutual respect and honesty.
