At Silvercorp, we understand that our operations have an impact on the environment and that it is our duty to mitigate, minimize, and prevent the risks and impacts associated with our operations, and invest in sustainable development initiatives that will last beyond the life of our mine. Our approach to our environmental goals is rooted in strong management and standards that guide our efforts at all levels of our company. At Silvercorp, we not only build “Green Mines,” but build lasting systems that maximize the efficiency of our operations. We are committed to limiting our energy consumption and emissions, water use, waste, and tailings, and instating strong biodiversity protection and land reclamation initiatives.
We believe that strong management is the key to lasting success. This past year, in an effort to further illustrate our commitment to strengthening our management team and improving upon our disclosure, both our Ying Mining District and GC Mine submitted applications for the environmental management system ISO 14001 certification and were approved in August and September 2021 respectively.
Additionally, we also established the ESG Management Center and issued the Silvercorp ESG Work Management Measures in Fiscal 2021, putting senior management directly in charge of decision-making. The ESG Management Center supervises, identifies, and mitigates the environmental risks of our mining districts and works with our subsidiaries to implement environmental management systems across the organization.
