Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations is 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 laws and regulations in each country where we operate. In addition, we operate in accordance with Glencore’s sustainable development framework, aspiring to achieve the highest international standards regardless of location and without exception. We conduct regular internal and external audits of our businesses and operations to assure compliance with our business principles, policies and standards.
