In 2021, we conducted our periodic ESG materiality assessment through engagement with internal and external stakeholders (community partners and investors). This year’s assessment incorporated a risk/ opportunity lens as well as double materiality3 - topics stakeholders believe have the highest potential impact on Coeur and those on which Coeur could potentially have the biggest impact. Within the process we also accounted for factors that peers, third-party ratings and other industry stakeholders consider material. Our Board of Directors and EHSCR Committee were informed of the process and reviewed the results which are now informing strategic decisions and tactical plans to mitigate risk, identify areas of opportunity and effectively allocate time and resources.
Furthermore, our assessment of double materiality is dynamic. Reviewing Coeur’s material topics has been incorporated as an ongoing agenda item with the ESG Committee as a useful process to reevaluate our most material topics and help identify emerging and expected developments.
The below represents the topics that are considered most material by stakeholders with respect to ESG-related matters:
At Coeur, we take our commitment to Pursue a Higher Standard seriously, exemplified at all levels of our organization and overseen by the highest levels of leadership. Our ESG efforts are led by members of senior leadership representing multiple internal stakeholders and reporting directly to the CEO. At the Board level, the Environment, Health, Safety and Corporate Responsibility (EHSCR) Committee primarily oversees ESG activities and discusses issues during every meeting. Each of the Board’s other committees also exercises oversight over some aspects of our ESG activities. Read our EHSCR Policy to learn more.
The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are “the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. Coeur mapped our responsibility strategies, activities and standards to the Sustainable Development Goals and identified 10 that best align with our business and the areas we believe we can have the greatest potential impact. You can learn more about how Coeur contributes to the SDGs goals in our 2021 ESG Report
Coeur will focus on the 10 SDGs that best align with what matters to Coeur.
By aligning with the SDGs and communicating our sustainability and social responsibility efforts, we support and contribute to the achievement of the global goals.
