ASPECT: INDIGENOUS RIGHTS
Disclosure of Management Approach Governance of relations with communities impacted by our operations is informed by IAMGOLD’s vision of Zero Harm, and is ultimately overseen by the Board of Directors as part of the Safety, Environment and Reserves Committee. This structure ensures that IAMGOLD’s vision of Zero Harm receives appropriate guidance and resources. For our commitment to communities, we like to think beyond Zero Harm, with the objective being to ensure that communities are better off because we are there. When working with communities, our goals are to build capacity, foster economic growth, contribute wherever possible to health, education, sport and culture, and to work in partnership with local communities. Our sites each manage their own community relations and development budget. They receive guidance through our Sustainability Policy and, more specifically, through our Sustainability Framework, which gives detailed guidance on best practices for community relations and development.

Sustainability Policy

As a company, we incorporate the following global guidelines and standards into our approach to community relations: the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), the Canadian Mining Association’s Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) program, and the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
