Demonstrating Environmental Responsibility
We understand that mining and energy production disturb the natural environment. Our general approach is to avoid environmental impacts wherever we reasonably can, and minimize, manage and remediate any remaining impacts. In this way, we can limit our impacts while seeking innovative ways to support environmental protection.
Our 2018 Performance:
- Achieved an overall reduction of 5% in Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions compared to 2017.
- Recorded one high-severity environmental incident at Ambatovy, as per Sherritt’s criteria for such occurrences, for the first time since the beginning of 2015.
- Continued improvements in environmental data reporting, including air emissions, waste and water.
- Reported a decrease of 18% in energy usage compared to 2017 by our Oil & Gas and Power operations. Consequently, Sherritt achieved an overall reduction of 11% in energy usage compared to the previous year.
