Our CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY VISION
Kinross believes we have a responsibility to conduct our operations in a manner that is safe for our employees, protective of the environment and fair for the host countries and communities where our operations are located. Through responsible mining, we believe we can generate sustainable value in our host countries and host communities.
Corporate responsibility is integral to our business strategy not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is good for business. Preserving and extending our commitment to responsible mining directly impacts our business in critical areas – in maintaining our social licence to operate with host communities, in accessing and permitting new deposits with host governments, and in attracting investment from an equity market increasingly sensitive to risk factors associated with environmental and social performance.
Corporate responsibility is explicit in Kinross’ core purpose: To lead the world in generating value through responsible mining. It is the focus of one of our four values – “Outstanding corporate citizenship” – and is a key component of another, “Putting people first.” Our Ten Guiding Principles for Corporate Responsibility provide a set of clear non-negotiable standards that define our relationships with employees, partners and the communities affected by our operations.
