UN SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals
Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable developments
Sustainable development is driven by innovation, partnership and a commitment to sharing best practices. It is through global partnerships that we can create meaningful change and strengthen implementation.
Working for a Sustainable Future:
Angico Eagle participates in a number of organizations that help guide sustainability practices in our industry including the Mining Association of Canada, the NWT & Nunavut Chamber of Mines, and the Canada Mining Innovation Council.
We are partnering with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) on its Industrial Research Chair on Nordic Biodiversity in a Mining Context at the University du Québec at Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT). The main objectives of the project are to: understand footprints over the mine life cycle and impacts on biodiversity; avoid risks for biodiversity and develop tools for ecological planning; and, enhance understanding of key species and climate change.
Agnico Eagle Finland donated 1 million Euros (1 M€) to the University of Oulu to advance mining education and research in the country. The donation is based on our goal of creating long-term northern business and securing future expertise in the industry.
We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Government of Nunavut. The MOU identifies 10 priority areas for collaboration and is the culmination of input from multiple departments of the Government of Nunavut and Agnico Eagle. Priority areas cover health, education, training, economic development, infrastructure, housing, heritage resources, wildlife, public safety, and climate change. This MOU reinforces our shared commitment to responsible resource development and a pledge to continue our productive relationship with government.
