Our Strategy & Approach

Our management of water-related risks includes the consideration of and engagement with other users within the catchment. We also support access to clean, reliable water supplies for communities around our operations.

Each mine is responsible for the development and implementation of procedures and programs that comply with corporate policies and initiatives. Water management considerations are integrated into mine operation and closure plans.

Programs & Initiatives

  • Water baseline studies are conducted prior to mining to identify catchment or district-level water availability and quality
  • Water balances track site-level water use, reuse, and discharge quantities
  • Participatory water monitoring programs at our Peruvian and Canadian operations involve community representatives from around our mine sites

2022 Goals

  • Reduce water use by 1% compared to the 2022 base case(1)
  • Finalize and rollout the Water Management Corporate Standard

Prioritized SDGs
