Environmental, Social & Governance
Environmental Sustainability, Social Responsibility, Transparent Governance
Phoenix Copper Limited is committed to being a leader in modern mining practices by making environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and transparent governance (ESG) the foundation of everything we do. In June 2021, we established an ESG & Sustainability Committee. The role of the committee is to ensure the practices of Phoenix Copper and its subsidiaries are meeting or exceeding the laws and regulations put in place to protect the natural resources and communities located in and around its mining operations.
Phoenix Copper and its subsidiaries take environmental responsibilities seriously. We have commissioned independent environmental and socio-economic studies to determine the impacts of opening the Empire open pit copper mine and to serve as a guide for the best way to mitigate these impacts. The following environmental assessments have been commissioned since 2017, some of which continue on an ongoing basis:
Visual Resources, Noise Monitoring, Surface and Groundwater Resources, Environmental Geochemistry, Meteorological, Socioeconomic Reports, Soil Resources, Seismic Evaluation, Wildlife & Vegetation, Geotechnical and Socioeconomic Surveys of Transportation Routes, Archaeological Study
