Nord Gold plc («Nordgold» or the «Company»), the internationally diversified gold producer, is pleased to announce the launch of a new educational website www.nordgold.com/biodiversity dedicated to biodiversity at the areas around the Company’s assets.
Biodiversity monitoring and preservation in areas around our mines form a crucial part of Nordgold’s ESG strategy. The launch of the website aims to further increase the awareness of the rich yet vulnerable wildlife in the areas adjacent to the Company’s operations by Nordgold’s employees, contractors and other stakeholders resulting in their active involvement in the Company’s environmental initiatives.
«We hope this project will help us to encourage and strengthen a shared, company-wide culture of environmentally responsible stewardship that will foster even greater employee and other stakeholder engagement and commitment to our overall environment responsibilities. Our ultimate aim is that through greater research and respective programmes we will preserve the biodiversity of these areas.»Igor KleevHealth, Safety and Environment Director
