Our Priorities

In 2020, we undertook a materiality assessment to ensure our public disclosures focus on those topics that matter most to our business, our shareholders and other important stakeholders.

Across each of our material topics, we are working to develop strategies and programs, and to establish metrics and other indicators to measure our performance over the short, medium and long term. To learn more about our materiality assessment approach and outcomes download our 2020 Sustainability Report.

Our Priorities

“Mining can play an integral role in advancing these goals, and Aris Gold recognizes the opportunity to contribute to those goals where we can have the greatest impact through our business activities.”

Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs establish a global agenda for countries, businesses and organizations to work together to protect the environment, eliminate poverty and ensure a healthy, prosperous life for all by 2030. The 17 SDGs and their associated targets are a collection of interconnected goals, meaning progress on one target may impact progress on another, both positively and negatively.

Mining can play an integral role in advancing these goals, and Aris Gold recognizes the opportunity to contribute to those goals where we can have the greatest impact through our business activities. The following four SDGs align to our business activities and where we can begin tracking Aris Gold’s progress toward making a positive or negative impact on the associated goals and targets.

COVID-19 Response

Since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March 2020, our on-site COVID-19 Committee has developed and implemented measures to protect our workforce, the nearby communities and the business.

Through collaboration with community leaders and other companies and organizations, Aris Gold provided much-needed support for the communities including masks, medical equipment, supplies, sanitation kits and food baskets for those impacted by the crisis.

More details about our COVID-19 response can be found in our 2020 Sustainability Report.
