Newcrest’s (ASX: NCM) (TSX: NCM) (PNGX: NCM) 2021 Sustainability Report, released today, shows continued progress in FY21 across health, safety, economic, environmental, social performance and governance despite the continued challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The safety, health and wellbeing of our people remains Newcrest’s highest priority. In FY21, Newcrest finished another year with no fatalities or life-changing injuries and reported a total recordable injury frequency rate (TRIFR) of 2.3 injuries per million hours worked.
Newcrest recognises climate change is a significant challenge facing the world today and it needs to contribute to the pursuit of a global reduction in carbon emissions. Newcrest has responded by committing to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This goal relates to operational (scope 1 and 2) emissions, though Newcrest is also working across the value chain to reduce scope 3 emissions.
Other FY21 highlights include:
Newcrest continues to maintain its commitment to high-quality governance, transparency and ethical business practices across the organisation. The Company reports sustainability performance based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, including the GRI Mining and Metals Sector Supplement.
