Newcrest is focused on maintaining a safe environment for our employees. We operate and develop mines in line with good environmental practices and we embrace a strong sense of commitment to local communities.
We acknowledge that mining is a significant consumer of energy, water and other resources and we work continually to reduce energy consumption and maximise the responsible management of materials. We aim to minimise any impact on ecosystems and communities in which we operate.
As we extend our operations and exploration projects in developing and developed countries, we are mindful of the need to maintain our ‘licence to operate’. We set out to build and maintain enduring relationships with our neighbours, based on mutual respect, active partnerships and long-term commitment.
We aim to help create the opportunity for sustainable economic development beyond the direct relationship with the mine or exploration site.
Public reporting and a commitment to keep our stakeholders informed is another part of our commitment to sustainability. Our Sustainability Report outlines Newcrest’s economic, environmental and social contribution.
