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 GRI framework, which is recognized as the international standard for sustainability reporting and used by more than 1,100 companies worldwide. This report 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).

In 2017, we mapped the content included in this report against the five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we established as our “priority goals” due to their alignment with our business and our ability to have an impact on outcomes in these areas. These SDGs are cross-referenced in the following GRI Index.

We developed this report in accordance with the GRI G4 Core option guidelines, which focus on the key risks and opportunities significant to our business and stakeholders. This report also includes indicators from the GRI Mining and Metals Sector disclosures. In 2018, Newmont plans to transition to the GRI Standards, which include all the main concepts and disclosures from the G4 guidelines.

We engaged Bureau Veritas North America Inc. to independently assure our report for inclusivity, completeness, responsiveness and accuracy on material and significant sustainability matters.
