UN SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

We work to minimize our use of water, land and chemicals, and to recycle and reuse our waste materials.

Working for a Sustainable Future:

We continue to advance recycling activities at our global operations and in 2017, we recycled 6,240 tonnes of material. We also focus on reducing our use of consumables, in part, to further reduce any associated waste. As a key component of our tailings management strategy, we reuse waste rock for other purposes – for example, waste rock from our Lapa operation was used to build a tailings dams at our LaRonde mine.
