Respecting the fundamental freedoms and human rights of our workers and the communities who could be impacted by our activities lies at the heart of our sustainability approach.

Because our activities have the potential to impact human rights, we commit to prevent, mitigate and manage potential negative impacts. We also strive to promote human rights and contribute to improved human dignity and living conditions through activities such as job creation and local procurement, investments in community capacity building, infrastructure, and economic development programs.

Newmont’s policies, human rights standard and supplier code of conduct guide our human rights performance, and the performance we expect from others working with us or on our behalf.

Those impacted by our activities must have access to appropriate remedies, judicial and non-judicial. Our commitment to operational level complaints and grievance mechanisms is outlined in our Stakeholder Relationship Management Standard.
