Five-Year Sustainability Goals
Previously, Sherritt reported against annual sustainability targets in this section. In place of these annualized performance metrics, Sherritt developed a suite of five-year sustainability goals in 2017. With the input of the divisions, and approved by the Executive team, these goals will shape priorities, long-range planning, and investment in sustainable development across all of Sherritt’s operations. For 2017 performance, review the 2017 performance summaries on the landing page of each pillar: Providing a Safe and Rewarding Workplace; Operating Ethically; Demonstrating Environmental Responsibility; and Engaging Stakeholders and Benefitting Communities. As well, our GRI performance tables can be found here.
These strategic goals will incorporate our external commitments and focus on areas that advance and protect our interests, and support Operational Excellence. They are intended to complement and supplement – not duplicate – priority efforts already underway.
|Achieve Level A requirements in TSM protocols across all operations|
|Strengthen safety culture, behaviour and performance|
|Improve water, energy and emissions management across operations|
|Create community benefit footprints that support local priorities and the SDGs|
|Be recognized as a “supplier of choice” for responsibly produced, high-quality products|
|Improve diversity at all levels throughout the company|
Check back for an update regarding the reporting template and metrics for the goals in the 2018 Sustainability Report.
We have aligned our report with the Global Reporting Initiative’s GRI Standards Guide. See www.globalreporting.org for more information.
