Our success depends on environmental performance
As a strategic raw materials investor in the mining industry, nature is our most important partner.
For this reason, we regard the careful use of natural resources not only as our company's social responsibility, but also as the key to economic success. With this in mind, make protecting the environment our top priority and recognise that each and every one of our employees and management team should bear this responsibility.
The goal of CRONIMET Mining is to not only meet the minimum legal requirements for resource conservation and low emissions, but to go even further. To this end, we align our activities to the applicable environmental laws and international standards, including the Equator Principles and the IFC Guidelines.
For our company and its subsidiaries and strategic partnerships, environmental sustainability means setting high environmental benchmarks and only investing in projects that fulfil our criteria for eco-friendly business practices.
Eco-friendly mining of raw materials
CRONIMET Mining also upholds a consistently responsible approach to the environment in its investment activities. For instance, we are supporting our strategic partnership Zangezur Copper Molybdenum Combine (ZCMC) with its Dam construction project in Kajaran, Armenia. The dam facilitates the eco-friendly use of water in industrial open-pit mining and also serves as a further training project for employees. Further, we have set ourselves the goal of operating mines using entirely sustainable energy in the future. Our first project in this area is to construct a solar power system that will supply green electricity to power the industrial mining activities of CRONIMET Mining in Thabazimbi, South Africa.
Social projects in Sustainability
We have also initiated sustainability projects that go beyond our business activities and serve entirely social causes – our Recycling project in South Africa is a prime example.
To strengthen CRONIMET Mining's ability to meet the demands of the future, we will continue to support environmental and social projects and optimise our production methods to take the best possible care of the environment.
