Xstrata Copper announces the publication of its annual Sustainability Reports describing the Sustainable Development (SD) performance in 2008 of each of its divisions and greenfield development projects at various locations around the globe, available on Xstrata’s website.
Xstrata Copper Chief Executive Charlie Sartain commented:
“Once again, Xstrata Copper has prepared its Sustainability Reports in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting G3 guidelines.
“Each of these eleven reports is prepared locally by our divisions and projects and is tailored to address the opportunities and key SD challenges of our local businesses and stakeholders.
“The publication of these reports bears testimony to the importance our organisation places not only on SD but on the public reporting of the impacts that our operations are having on the economic, environmental and social wellbeing of the communities and regions in which we operate.
“I urge you to take the time to read these reports and send us your feedback on how we may be able to further improve our sustainability reporting.”
Translation into English of the South American reports is under way and these will be posted as soon as they become available. Printed copies will be distributed to key stakeholders and will also be available through each division and site and at Xstrata Copper’s corporate and regional offices.
