Check out this video by the World Gold Council to see how Kinross is supporting the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through positive contributions to communities.
The World Gold Council featured Kinross’ work in advancing the SDGs by speaking with Ed Opitz, Senior Vice-President, Safety and Sustainability, and employees at our Tasiast and Chirano sites who have led initiatives that have improved the well-being of communities near our mines.
Hapsatou Bal, Community Relations Manager, Nouakchott, discussed our efforts to create jobs and economic opportunities for women in West Africa, which supports SDG 1 (no poverty) and SDG 5 (gender equality).
Eunice Whaja Donkoh, Community Relations Superintendent, Chirano, discussed our initiative to connect community members to power grids in Ghana, which supports SDG 7 (clean and affordable energy).
