About This Report

This report describes our sustainability performance for the calendar year of January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. We report on an annual basis, with any material sustainability information included in our quarterly disclosures through the course of the year. Our most recent annual sustainability report covered the period from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.

We have structured this report to align with our sustainability framework. For each pillar, we disclose our management approach and performance in relation to our material issues. This year, we revised our data collection and reporting process in accordance with the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines – Core Option. A full GRI Index and performance table is provided here. The methods used for calculating several indicators reported in the past have been revised to reflect this realignment. As a result, fewer trends from previous years can be reported in this edition. Sherritt is also working towards improving information management systems for a variety of indicators that are inputs to this report. This effort should ensure that data are more robust and reliable in future reports.

The 2015 Sustainability Report has not been externally assured.
