We are proud to announce that Agnico Eagle has earned a place on the Corporate Knights list of 2021 Global 100 Sustainable Corporations.
With an overall score of 60.6%, Agnico Eagle placed seventy-third and is the top-ranked mining company appearing on the 2021 Global 100 list. This win reinforces our work and commitment to sustainable and responsible gold mining and puts us in good company with many other recognized leaders in sustainability.
While Agnico Eagle has been named to the Corporate Knights list of Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada in previous years, this is the first time the Company has garnered recognition as a leader on the global stage.
The selection process for this year’s list began with a rigorous assessment of 8,080 companies (representing more than US$1 billion in revenues), evaluating them based on a set of environmental, governance, social and economic key performance indicators, including new social criteria reflected by both the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized as one of the world’s 100 most sustainable corporations, especially as the top-ranking mining company,” said Carol Plummer, Senior Vice President, Sustainability, People & Culture. “For over 60 years, Agnico Eagle has worked hard to earn our reputation as a partner of choice within the industry by operating with respect for others, building trust, being reliable and sharing opportunities.”
“At Agnico Eagle, sustainability is a mindset and we see it as an opportunity to do better, to constantly improve and to deliver on our responsibilities and promises to our stakeholders.” added Sean Boyd, Vice-Chair and CEO.
Congratulations to everyone involved in contributing to this achievement. As a company we are committed to the prosperity of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate and your hard work and commitment to our sustainability goals continues to be what drives Agnico Eagle’s success!
