Sustainable Mining

At Endeavour, we recognise that we are an integral part of the communities in which we operate. We see this as a privilege, but also acknowledge the responsibilities and obligations that that brings.

We strive to develop and maintain strong relationships and provide long-term benefits to our local communities, and are determined to act with integrity and transparency in everything we do.

As a responsible development partner, Endeavour works in collaboration with government, local communities and outside organizations to ensure we support economic sustainability and social development, as well as playing our part in conserving and protecting the environment and ensuring the highest standards of health and safety.

Social Development

Endeavour is committed to building lasting partnerships that help create prosperity in the communities influenced by our projects - now and for future generations. Where we can, we work with partners to identify needs and invest in solutions and programs that will deliver measurable and sustainable results.

These projects cover a broad range of activities that benefit our local communities. In education, they include skills training and educational scholarships; in health they include medical care, clean water provision and improved sanitation, and they also include public infrastructure programmes to create a lasting legacy of sustainable economic benefit.

For instance, Endeavour is working with the Monaco Red Cross to implement water, sanitation and community-based health programs in communities surrounding our mine sites in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire.

Environment

Endeavour is committed to sustainable development. We understand that the long-term success of our business is dependent upon good stewardship in both the protection of the environment and the efficient management of the exploration and extraction of mineral resources. Our values and business principles are based on a “zero harm” environmental management performance. This underpins our environmental policy.

Aside from abiding by all applicable environmental laws, regulations and requirements, we are committed to establishing and maintaining management systems to identify, monitor and control the environmental aspects of our activities. Furthermore, we have pledged to work with local representatives in the communities in which we operate to educate them on the environmental obligations associated with our activities.

Health and Safety

We place people first on our value list and put the highest priority on safe and healthy work practices and systems. Our business principles and policies are based on targeting the achievement of a “zero harm” performance, and striving continually to improve our performance.
