At Durango Resources Inc., we are committed to responsible exploration and development of our properties. We seek to contribute to the sustainable development of the communities in which we work.
Our core activities are guided by the following principles:
Environment and Society
We apply environmental and social best management practices in the planning, design and implementation of our exploration and development activities. We aim to exceed regulatory requirements in the jurisdictions in which we work. We strive to use land, water and energy resources responsibly; to maintain the integrity and diversity of ecological systems; and to apply innovative approaches to land use.
Community and Government Relations
We establish beneficial local partnerships to contribute to achieving development goals identified by communities in which we work, to address local priorities and concerns, and to have communities benefit both socially and economically from our activities. We engage with governments, communities, indigenous peoples, organizations, groups and individuals in open and transparent dialogue on the basis of mutual respect, fairness, transparency, and honour.
Labour, Health and Safety
We provide fair treatment, non-discrimination and equal opportunity for our employees, and comply with labour and employment laws in the jurisdictions in which we work. We respect human rights principles, as well as local cultures, customs and values, in our dealings with employees, communities and other stakeholders. We operate in a responsible manner so that our activities protect the health and safety of our employees and contractors, and of the communities in which we work.
At Durango Resources, we assess the financial, social and environmental benefits and risks of our business decisions. Durango’s operations are being conducted according to fundamental principles of positive social engagement and environmental impact minimization. The Company is striving to be an industry leader in this respect, adopting a “best practices” approach to all of its activities and thereby earning the acceptance of its host communities.
