We collaborate to enhance the health and well-being of our communities by addressing impacts and developing initiatives that achieve positive social and economic benefits that last.
Community Wellbeing & Economic Development
We believe that our success is directly tied to the health, wellbeing and socio-economic development of neighbouring communities. To help ensure we achieve positive and lasting impacts we are developing targets at the corporate and operational levels that fall broadly into two categories:
1. Community Health & Wellbeing
Our goal is to partner with communities to co-develop and contribute to the implementation of their long-term vision, anchored in improving education and social capital.
2. Local Economic Development
To Lundin Mining, local economic development means developing and increasing the capacities of people and businesses within the vicinity of our operations. We want to create a climate for life-long skills development, empowering people and local businesses to be able to work with us. Additionally, we want to inspire economic diversification, so communities can connect with different value chains, and are therefore not economically dependent on mining operations alone.

Each of our operations identify opportunities to work with the Lundin Foundation to access additional expertise and resources to magnify the impact of our investments. Lundin Mining’s site teams benefit from the Foundation's subject matter expertise while developing a shared approach to stakeholder engagement. The Foundation projects are a platform for engaging with new stakeholders, such as small- and medium-sized enterprise entrepreneurs who can become part of our supply chain or part of our economic diversification strategies.
