“Adapting to the ever-changing needs of our stakeholders and employees, while prioritizing the safety and well-being of individuals, the environment, and our assets, requires resilience and is at the heart of what defines us as a truly responsible and caring business. As we navigate the global shift towards a more sustainable future, we aim to set a strong example in the mining industry: how mining done right with purpose, and commitment to the environment and social responsibility, will play a significant role in the world’s transition to using cleaner energy.  Although the journey is not an easy one, our commitment to cultivating diverse and creative thinking within our organization ensures our pivotal role in the supply of critical metals for generations to come.”
