Sustainability Overview

At DPM, sustainability is fundamental to our culture. It is embedded into our organization and guides our decision-making at all levels. Since our inception, we have understood that our responsibilities to the environment and our local communities begins before exploration begins and continues long after a mine has closed.

Our Approach to Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability and ESG is centered around maximizing the net positive impact from our operations. In our view, this is a broad concept that goes beyond measuring our financial and economic impact and also captures how effectively we are:

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.

Partnering with Local Communities

Our dedication to the long-term sustainability of the communities where we operate is embedded in both DPM’s core purpose, unlocking resources and generating value to thrive and grow together, and our strategic objective to generate a net positive impact from our operations.

Environmental Management

Generating a net positive impact goes beyond the rigorous management systems, processes and controls, and the day to day efforts we make across the organization to minimize any negative environmental impacts from DPM operations. Our more ambitious goal is to create a positive environmental legacy, embodying our core value of being stewards of the environment, and making ecosystem services more robust and resilient for our host communities.
