This week, we launched our 2020 Sustainability Report, highlighting another successful year of responsible mining despite numerous challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The report documents our performance and targets in the critical areas of safety and sustainability, including environment, social, and governance metrics.
We also launched our inaugural 2020 Climate Report in line with our commitment to environmental stewardship and meeting goals of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement. This report provides investors and stakeholders with timely information on our global efforts to tackle climate change, and how we manage risks to our business.
“Despite the extraordinary challenges that we all faced in 2020, Kinross was able to maintain a consistently high level of sustainability performance, none of which would have been possible without the outstanding efforts of our employees,” said J. Paul Rollinson, President and CEO. “Their hard work and dedication, together with the support of our suppliers, local communities, and host governments, allowed Kinross to continue improving people’s lives and well-being.”
