Newmont strives to build trust with stakeholders through proactive, transparent, and inclusive engagement. We seek to develop and maintain long-term relationships with host communities based on trust and integrity.

As a Company, we are required to be transparent about our achievements and challenges. We publish a yearly sustainability report which aligns with our values of safety, integrity, sustainability, inclusion and responsibility.

Minera Peñasquito interacts with 25 neighboring communities that are within our area of direct influence, distributed across three municipalities of the State of Zacatecas: Mazapil, Concepción del Oro and Melchor Ocampo, which collectively total more than 5,000 inhabitants.

Our social responsibility strategy is aligned with 11 of the 17 sustainable development goals 2030 promoted by the United Nations (UN). We have established 10 partnerships with civil society organizations, along with educational and governmental institutions in the region.

Below are examples of the community programs that we continue to work on to create value and improve lives:

Community Care and Response System: This program aims to receive and provide a timely response to inquiries, requests and concerns arising from the possible impacts that our operations may have on neighboring communities.

Employment and Development of Local Skills: We have implemented training programs to develop local skills among the inhabitants of the region to help them develop the required skills to join our workforce in the short term.
