Kinross Brasil was recently recertified by SA 8000 for their social responsibility efforts over the last three years. This is Kinross’ sixth time being recognized by the standard since 2004, as each certification is valid for three years.
Some highlights of Kinross’ sustainability and social responsibility efforts since their last certification in 2018 include income and job opportunity training, supporting local foodbanks through the Integrar program, supporting local children and elderly protection services for those in vulnerable areas, and campaigning to reduce the risk of domestic violence for women and children in the community.

“We are proud to be one of the Brazilian companies committed to social responsibility who have received this recertification,” said Eduardo Magalhães, Director of HR, Supplies and IT. “As we celebrate this milestone, we will continue to demonstrate our commitment to social responsibility and improving the environment and communities surrounding our operation.”
SA 8000 is an international standard of social responsibility, developed and supervised by the Social Accountability International (SAI) organization. Being certified by SA 8000 indicates companies are compliant with local and international rules and regulations to ensure good working conditions for employees and their communities.
