Discovery Silver Releases Inaugural ESG Report

 

 

 

 

 

Discovery Silver Corp. (TSX-V: DSV) (OTCQX: DSVSF) is pleased to announce that it has produced its first Environmental, Social and Governance report, setting out the Company’s current practices and priorities going forward.

 

Taj Singh, President and CEO, states: “We are excited to share our inaugural ESG report as part of Discovery’s evolution. We believe that ESG management is a key component of delivering long-term value and business resiliency. As we grow, we want to manage ESG issues responsibly and transparently; this means empowering our people to continuously evolve and innovate, maintain an accountable and transparent health and safety culture, create shared and mutually beneficial relationships with our local communities, and minimize our impact on the environment. We recognize that social and environmental stewardship combined with ethical, transparent governance drives performance.”

 

“Silver has an important role to play in the world’s clean energy future. This precious metal is gaining attention as one of the most important “green” metals because of its critical role across many green energy technologies. Considering the status of our Cordero Project as one of the world’s largest development-stage silver deposits globally, I’m excited about the opportunity we have at Cordero to produce this critical resource to support a more sustainable future.”
