In early 2015, Newmont became one of six global companies – and the first in the extractive industry – to become an early adopter of the Reporting Framework for the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The Reporting Framework – which was developed over two years through a global, multi-stakeholder consultative process called the Reporting and Assurance Frameworks Initiative (RAFI) – helps businesses demonstrate how they meet their responsibilities to respect human rights by using a framework of questions that assess risk and performance. The Reporting Framework provides guidance on how to disclose meaningful information on our overall human rights performance; provides guidance for human rights reporting within the context of our broader sustainability reporting; and helps us improve internal conversations, decisions and actions that directly support more effective management of our most salient human rights risks.
Newmont has committed to using the Reporting Framework to define and report on our most salient human rights risks – or those that have the highest likelihood of being impacted by our activities or business relationships – and to publish our policies and disclose the measures we take to safeguard human rights in the places we operate. We also expect the framework to serve as a basis for constructive and meaningful engagement with key stakeholders.
Developed in consultation with companies, governments, investors, civil society organizations and professional services firms, the Reporting Framework has the formal support of more than 80 global investors representing over $4.8 trillion assets under management.
