As a founding member of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), Newmont commits to uphold the ICMM’s 10 Principles for Sustainable Development and to report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) framework, which is recognized as the international standard for sustainability reporting and used by more than 1,100 companies worldwide. This report also reflects our reporting obligations as a member of ICMM and in accordance with our commitments under the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPSHR), the United Nations Global Compact and the Global Sullivan Principles.

This report is developed in accordance with the GRI G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and Mining & Metals Sector Supplement at an A+ level. In alignment with our ICMM commitments, we will report against the G4 Core indicators in our 2015 report. We have engaged Bureau Veritas North America Inc. to independently assure our report for inclusivity, completeness, responsiveness and accuracy on material and significant sustainability matters.
