As we enter our third year of operation, Detour Gold continues to pursue a vision of sustainable development we call a triple bottom line. That means we provide economic prosperity and promote social well-being while preserving a healthy environment – essentially what is good for business is good for society. This triple bottom line vision of sustainable development anchors the way we conduct our business across our entire operation.
For us, corporate responsibility means continual improvements to health and safety. It means improving environmental stewardship, good governance and open, honest reporting and conversation with stakeholders. Corporate responsibility is a central element of our business. Our goal is to line up the economic, ecological and social aspects of our corporate strategy.
At the core of our operations is a strong commitment to sustainability. As you’ll see in this second Corporate Sustainability Report, our systems are maturing and our operational measures are more consistent.
CSR reporting is a journey with plenty of work still to do, but we’re encouraged by our progress. We’re committed to continuously improving that performance.
“Our success depends on the support of our employees and the communities affected by our mine. We will earn that support by keeping employees safe, respecting the environment, and playing an active role in our communities.”
- Paul Martin, President & CEO
