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 5: We consider all aspects of an operation or new project – including social, environmental, and post-closure issues – when making our investment decisions.
A Life-of-Mine Approach
A key part of our due diligence process in evaluating potential new investments or partnership arrangements involves the assessment of relevant environmental and social considerations, including potential human rights issues and potential risks. We take a "life-of-mine" approach in assessing and addressing the environmental and social responsibilities that pertain to every stage of mine development, from exploration through to reclamation.
