FATALITIES & LOST TIME INJURY FREQUENCY RATE*
1.4 LTIFR

Why it is important

Safety is a key priority for the Group with fatalities and the LTIFR being two of the principal measures of performance.

Performance in 2017

Zero fatalities and the Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate of the Group reduced to 1.4 accidents with lost time per million hours worked.

* The Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate is the number of accidents with lost time during the year per million hours worked.

 

 

Water Consumption*
65.7mm³

Why it is important

Water is a precious resource and the Group is focused on using the most sustainable sources and maximising its efficient use.

Performance in 2017

Consumption of water increased during 2017, mainly after the commissioning of the Encuentro Oxides project and the adoption of ICMM’s new water reporting guidelines.

*Relates to the mining division only.

Emissions*
3.87 tonnes

Why it is important

The Group recognises the risks and opportunities of climate change and the need to measure and mitigate its greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions.

Performance in 2017

Carbon emission intensity increased from 2016 primarily due to Antucoya operating at full production for the whole year, the commissioning of Encuentro Oxides and the slight decrease in total production.
