Hochschild Mining reports on its sustainability performance through quarterly updates on Key Performance Indicators, a Sustainability Report as part of the Annual Report and Accounts, and comprehensive disclosure in a standalone Sustainability Report.

The standalone Sustainability Report covers not only the activities and performance of the Company and its subsidiaries, but also of joint-ventures where it acts as operator.  The latest report was:

  • Prepared in accordance with the "Core" option of the Global Reporting Initiative Standards; and
  • Independently assured by PwC

After a comprehensive internal review, the Board of Directors approved in August 2023 the Company ESG Key Performance Indicators ("KPI") and their targets for 2030. These KPI take into account the materiality assessment which identified areas of importance to both internal and external stakeholders. The selected KPI targets for 2030 will be measured against the 2021 baseline year and performance will be reported on an annual basis.

Reporting Developments

The Company will monitor the continued relevance of the selected ESG KPI targets and will be supplemented as appropriate, for example, by the revision of the Climate Change related targets on completion of Hochschild's Climate Strategy to achieve Net Zero by 2050.
