UN SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities
Reduce inequality within and among countries
At Agnico Eagle, we strive to ensure that our presence in a region or a country enhances the quality of life in all the communities that surround our projects. Within our workforce, we promote an environment that ensures equality, inclusion and empowerment for all employees. Within our host communities, we ensure our presence benefits all stakeholders and promotes equality through the application of our Sustainable Development policy and our Code of Ethics.
Working for a Sustainable Future:
Agnico Eagle recognizes that the negative legacy of past resource development must be improved. In that spirit, we are committed to consulting with, and accommodating, traditional land owners for the use of such land in conducing our mining activities.
In 2017, we undertook consultation and accommodation processes with Algonquin First Nations in both Northwestern Quebec and Northeastern Ontario. Through ongoing discussions, we believe that the agreements we have reached to date, and any future agreements, will contribute to reducing inequalities within and among Indigenous communities.
