At Future Battery Minerals, we believe operating in a sustainable manner is essential to delivering the company’s core strategy and objectives.
In addition to achieving exploration success across our portfolio of projects, we believe that putting in place a plan to become more sustainable will help create maximum longterm value for all our stakeholders, including shareholders, partners, traditional landowners and the local communities in which we operate.
As a company focused on resource discovery and definition, we have an ideal opportunity to ensure we plan for the implementation of sustainable practices across the company. We believe as early as project sanctioning, Future Battery Minerals should achieve genuine, measurable and permanent improvements in sustainability practices in both the development and operation of its projects. Accordingly, we have published this Sustainability Plan to set the foundations and framework for future development activities across our nickel and base metal projects.
We recognise that setting a framework to building and operating a mining project sustainably is not only relevant to how Future Battery Minerals impacts the environment and local communities but is also vital to generating long term value for all our stakeholders.
Sustainability is central to Future Battery Minerals’s corporate strategy, and we have developed a pillared sustainability plan to define ambitions, set action plans and track future performance. Our plan and pillared strategy are aligned to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and has been set by the Company’s Sustainability Committee, chaired by Director Mike Edwards.
