Corporate Responsibility Policy

Informed by OUR VALUES, our Corporate Responsibility Policy reinforces and strengthens our integrated approach to managing our commitments and responsibilities across three broad and inter-related pillars: health and safety, Environment and Social.

We believe that sustainability in the mining industry requires that companies have an enduring and robust business strategy that can deliver prosperity to all stakeholders over the long-term. At DPM, we achieve this through a holistic approach to sustainability, which is one of our four strategic pillars and is embedded into all aspects of the business.

Our Corporate Responsibility Policy forms the foundation of our commitments in this critical area of our business, and all employees and contractors who work at our sites have the responsibility to comply with the policy.

We operationalize our policy by having a business model that embeds risk and performance management, transparent reporting, audit and assurance and continuous improvement into every aspect and level of the business. As a result, we commit to the following:



  • Striving to achieve zero harm to our Internal and External Stakeholders.
  • Designing, operating and maintaining safe and healthy Workplaces.
  • Continuously improving our leadership and behaviours to achieve an Interdependent Safety Culture.
  • Engaging Employees and Third Parties to identify Workplace hazards and effectively managing risk through application of hierarchy of controls.
