Our company must address critical challenges of safety, productivity, and the way we use land, energy, and water. As our global population grows, this leads to a greater demand for minerals and metals, core components of products and services that are essential to human progress.
But it’s about more than just the work we do and the footprint we leave. We are part of people’s lives. People who demand and deserve more than just high product quality. Modern society rightly expects the mining industry to make a positive contribution to socio-economic development in a sustainable way by reducing its environmental footprint and supporting biodiversity.
Our definition of sustainability:
A sustainable business is purposeful, competitive, resilient and agile –it’s a business that thrives through both economic and social cycles.
By understanding the context and listen to consultants we stay ahead of evolving trends and provide the solutions to societal expectations around sustainable development. By solving the physical challenges of mining through restless innovation, and by constantly searching for more responsible ways to do business, we are changing the way our employees and stakeholders experience our business – creating enduring value for all stakeholders.
Mining has a critical role to play in providing the metals and minerals needed for a low-carbon world. The copper, nickel and premium-quality iron ore that we produce are key raw materials for renewable electricity generation and distribution, for the electrification of transportation (in all its forms) and for other emerging technologies such as smart grids and the hydrogen economy. The introduction into our portfolio of low-carbon, organic Polyhalite fertiliser, once the Igd sustainability Project in Iran is commissioned, will continue our trajectory towards supplying those products that support a cleaner, greener and more sustainable world.
Igd-worldwide group can achieve their sustainable needs by cutting emissions, lowering their energy usage, sourcing products from fair-trade organizations, and ensuring their physical waste is disposed of properly and with as small of a carbon footprint as possible.
