Our approach to sustainability is guided by our Mission and Values, and rooted in our deep respect for the communities and land that host our operations.

Detour Gold’s future depends on our ability to operate in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, creating value and sustainable benefits for our shareholders, employees and local communities.

Sustainability is fully integrated into our business strategy, risk management and planning processes. While laws and regulations governing our operations play a key part in helping us be a responsible operator, we aim to go beyond compliance. We have put in place policies, processes and programs to achieve higher standards of social, economic and environmental performance, in keeping with the expectations of our shareholders, communities and ourselves.

We focus our efforts in the areas that matter most to our business and our stakeholders, which include:


  • Safety
  • Stable and secure employment
  • Training and development opportunities available to all employees
  • Professional development and progression
  • Diversity and inclusion


  • Economic impacts
