At Goldcorp, we recognize that our operations will have impacts on the areas around our mine sites, bringing both opportunities and issues of concern for residents. We strive to partner with local stakeholders to understand their needs and address their questions, and to conduct our business in a way that supports strong, vibrant and sustainable communities.
The closer a mining operation is to a residential area, the greater the impact felt by local residents – and the greater the need to build and maintain trust through transparency and dialogue.
At Goldcorp, we have a lot of internal expertise on the technical aspects of mining and environmental management, but we know that knowledge comes in many forms. We want to be contributing members of partnerships that will build a body of knowledge that contributes to the social and environmental well-being of the communities in which we work.
