Developing the next major nickel project in Brazil

SUSTAINABILITY

Our vision to be a globally significant, sustainable nickel producer, means that sustainability plays a critical part in our business strategy.

“Embedding sustainability in how we operate means tackling the major environmental, social and governance challenges that are currently facing companies like ours in the mining and metals sector – including decarbonization and the continuing need to minimize our own environmental footprint.

In our developments, we recognize the importance of the natural environment to the people of Brazil and the global community. As countries around the world move towards lower-carbon economies, we face the challenge of managing precious natural resources, including nickel and other metals, which have a vital role to play in the transformation of our economies to low and zero carbon.

In parallel, we need to restore and enhance biodiversity and protect shared natural capital such as water. Our biodiversity action plan is designed to deliver a net positive impact on biodiversity. We will do this by working to avoid impacts wherever possible and, in partnership with our neighbors and other land managers, by protecting and enhancing areas of conservation. Our vision is to establish a series of ecological corridors and to create new habitats for enhanced biodiversity.

We also face myriad social challenges, needing to work collaboratively with local communities and protecting their cultures, ways of life and enhancing their livelihoods by supporting the development of skills and capability.

And, of course, we need to meet all these challenges while remaining profitable and capable of driving the investment and shared benefit we seek.”
