Pan American Silver provides enhanced exposure to silver through large silver reserves and catalysts to grow silver production.
We strive to minimize the impacts of our operations throughout the mining lifecycle with the goal of minimizing net habitat loss over the long term.
We design, construct, and operate intending to minimize our impacts on biodiversity. Our Environmental Policy sets out our commitment to not explore or develop mines in internationally designated protected areas.
Each operation maintains a biodiversity conservation system as part of a site-wide environmental management system and applies a mitigation hierarchy framework—avoid, minimize, restore, and/or offset to manage potential impacts.
Pan American’s biodiversity conservation plan for our Escobal operation in Guatemala has been successful in protecting wild cats.
