Our Sustainable Development Poilicy
We are committed to the goal of sustainable development. We balance social, environmental and economic considerations in how we manage our business. We believe that operating to leading standards of health, safety and environmental management, contributing to the development of sustainable communities, and engaging with our stakeholders in two-way, open dialogue, regardless of our location, enhances our corporate reputation and is a source of competitive advantage. This enables us to gain access to new resources, maintain a license to operate, attract and retain the best people, access diverse and low-cost sources of capital, identify and act upon business opportunities and optimize our management of risks.
We comply in full with the Philippine laws and regulations. In addition, we operate in accordance with SMI’s sustainable development management framework, aspiring to achieve the highest international standards. We conduct regular internal and external audits of our business and operations to assure compliance with our business principles, policies and standards.
