“I am delighted that Newcrest has become the ICMM’s 25th member company and today [1 November 2017] I had the great pleasure to welcome Newcrest’s CEO Sandeep Biswas at our Council meeting,” says Tom Butler, ICMM’s CEO.
“Newcrest, one of the world’s largest gold mining companies, has demonstrated their commitment to ICMM’s sustainable development framework across their operations in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Côte d’Ivoire.”
“Newcrest is committed to ICMM principles on sustainable development and is working across our operations to embed them,” continues Newcrest MD and CEO Sandeep Biswas.
“Sustainable mining delivers safe and profitable operations. It means that local communities are engaged and respected, that environmental impacts are assessed and managed, and that business decisions are made ethically and transparently.
Newcrest’s membership of ICMM provides the opportunity to benchmark the company’s performance and to learn from its global peer companies, and to contribute its own experience in support of ICMM’s efforts to shape global industry standards, Biswas concludes.
Member companies’ sustainability performance is independently assessed annually to ensure that their sustainability policies align with the ICMM 10 Principles and mandatory requirements set out in supporting ICMM position statements.
