Our Approach to Environmental Stewardship

Newmont’s operations span four continents in ecosystems ranging from the Andes in Peru to tropical forests in Ghana and Suriname and the deserts of North America and Australia.

We are committed to managing potential impacts on water, land, climate, air quality and biodiversity, protecting diverse environments, and engaging stakeholders on effective solutions to the unique challenges of each jurisdiction.

Our Sustainability and Stakeholder Engagement Policy addresses the key environmental risks our business faces and the commitments in these areas. This includes a commitment to avoid, minimize, mitigate and/or remediate our impacts on the environment, and to maintain overall ecosystem health and resiliency in the areas where we operate.

Our global strategies on water, energy and climate, and closure and reclamation strengthen our governance, reduce our risks and liabilities, and support our overall goal of continuously improving our performance.
