Sustainable Development Goals

SSR Mining and the Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of goals adopted by the United Nations whose aim is to eradicate poverty, protect the environment and advance prosperity equitably by 2030. In 2019 we undertook the important step of committing our company to play a role in meeting the SDG objectives. This includes committing to its Ten Principles, which cover human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and support for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals that relate to our industry.

Through 2020 we will begin the process of aligning our policies to the relevant Sustainable Development Goals.
