‘If it’s not grown, it’s mined’
Sustainability is very important to us as we believe that the base metals, we produce are for the benefit of all our stakeholders.
Sustainability covers wide-ranging aspects, primarily categorised into responsible stewardship, health safety and wellbeing, our people, the environment and our communities, and our efforts in these areas are fully integrated within our operations.

CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Central to Sasa’s environmental work is the monitoring, measurement, analysis and evaluation of environmental aspects, such as water, air quality, soils, biodiversity, hazardous material handling, waste generation and recycling, greenhouse gas (‘GHG’) emissions and energy efficiency.
Internal audits for environmental performance are undertaken frequently and documenting systems have been implemented at our mine. Comprehensive environmental management systems (‘EMS’) have been developed, with ISO14001:2015 standards adhered to at Sasa (as confirmed by a 2019 audit).
Leadership and commitment to these systems are demonstrated through our management approach and actions. IFC and Equator Principles are also implemented where feasible at both sites. Adequate emergency response plans are in place for environmental situations.
