Torbjörn Ranta, CEO Nickel Mountain:
Nickel Mountain has always strived to operate with a high level of respect for all stakeholders; our aim is to ensure that this occurs in a more formalised manner and across all operations. Nickel Mountain has therefore undertaken a process to formalise its existing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives by providing a more comprehensive CSR framework. The next step in the process will be to ensure that this CSR framework is understood and implemented by all concerned parties. Nickel Mountain is committed to fulfilling its responsibilities towards its shareholders and other stakeholders as a conscientious corporate citizen. Our objective is to be an economically highly successful company and, at the same time, being a highly responsible company which entails: operating a workplace that is safe and healthy; ensuring that all employees have the opportunities and rights as mandated by the United Nations Conventions of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation’s conventions; making sure that we have a strong relationship with the communities that host us; and that we achieve a high level of business ethics and transparency in our day-to-day business operations. Bearing in mind that Nickel Mountain is a relatively small company we will, nevertheless, strive to be in the forefront on CSR related issues. Our CSR related initiatives will always be a “work in progress” and we welcome the opportunity to work with you as we move the company forward.
Ethics and Governance
In pursuit of our commercial vision and a strong economic performance, Nickel Mountain will strive to earn and retain the trust of shareholders and stakeholders through our commitment to sound and effective corporate governance.
Occupational Health and Safety
Nickel Mountain is committed to the health and safety of all our employees throughout the organisation.
Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we aim to provide an environment that promotes a high level of commitment from our employees.
Businesses are dependent upon local community support to operate, develop and progress. At Nickel Mountain, we believe that by letting this guide our actions our business operations is more likely to succeed. Nickel Mountain is committed to engaging with the local communities wherever we operate.
Nickel Mountain understands the significant impacts exploration and mining have on the environment. We want to ensure that we minimize this impact to the extent possible. The long-term sustainability of our business is dependant upon a high level of environmental performance.
