Responsible Mining

Lundin Mining is committed to Responsible Mining. Our reputation as a good corporate citizen is central to our values and vital to the long-term success of our business. We seek to create enduring relationships and shared values with our local communities and our stakeholders.

We are committed to operating in compliance with applicable laws and regulations in all jurisdictions where we operate, and we seek to continuously improve our sustainability performance. We strive to align our policies and procedures with international best practice and guidance for social and environmental performance, and to ensure that we meet our objectives and targets. Management monitors and reviews performance on a regular basis, and we publicly communicate our efforts annually.

We have established a Responsible Mining Policy that describes our specific management commitments to responsible mining. In addition, our Responsible Mining Framework provides a comprehensive, single point of reference for information relating to our commitment to sustainable development. Under this Framework we commit to develop and implement management systems and operating practices that take into consideration applicable international guidelines.

Focused on the Future: Lundin Mining’s Sustainability Strategy

As our business continues to grow, we knew we needed to ensure our approach to Responsible Mining keeps pace with climate change, the high metal demands of a green economy, and ever-evolving stakeholder interests and expectations.

In late 2020, Lundin Mining formally started our journey to refresh our approach to sustainability and develop a new long-term strategy. We formed a cross-functional internal Sustainability Working Group in 2021 to develop our approach and guide this work.

With executive level support, the Sustainability working group undertook an in-depth mapping project to identify the sustainability topics material to our business, aligned with our Responsible Mining Policy and the areas we can make the most positive impact.

This materiality assessment took into consideration the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Global Reporting Initiative Framework (GRI), industry best practices and the work we have been doing at our operations around the world.

The result of our mapping project and lead up work is Focused on the Future: Lundin Mining’s Sustainability Strategy.

Guiding the strategy is our purpose statement: Mining responsibly to contribute to a more sustainable world.

To achieve our purpose statement, we have divided our work into 5 key priorities, or pillars. We’ve visualized them in an interlocked graphic because we believe each topic is connected.
