We are always looking for new ways to minimise our environmental impact, and make production processes more efficient by reducing resource use and residue generation.
Recycling in Brazil
Our mining operation at Serra Azul, Brazil, is working with a local cooperative to help support the local community. By sorting and collecting our waste, we not only improve our environmental impact, but we also provide a source of income for local people.
Sustain Our Great Lakes
We also continued our partnership in the public-private collaborative, Sustain Our Great Lakes in the USA. Working with both governmental and non-governmental organisations, the programme’s mission is to restore and protect fish, wildlife and habitat in the Great Lakes, supporting both Canada and the US on key ecological issues. The total grant award in 2012 funding for restoration projects was $8.2 million. For more information see www.sustainourgreatlakes.org.
