Earlier this month, Newmont was named one of the world’s most admired companies as the result of an in-depth survey conducted by Fortune magazine.
Ranked as the top mining company globally, we received recognition for the quality of our management team, and our strong performance in the areas of social responsibility, long-term investment, people management and innovation.
Gary Goldberg, Newmont’s President and Chief Executive Officer, congratulated employees on the achievement:
“This recognition speaks to the caliber of our team, as well as our success in executing our strategy and living our values. We work hard to ensure that Newmont delivers long-term value to investors, creates a safe working environment and opportunities for employees, and serves as a responsible partner to our host governments and communities. It’s gratifying to have other leaders verify our results.”
Fortune bases its ranking on the opinions of 3,900 executives, directors and securities analysts. In addition to being named one of Fortune’s most admired companies, we were also confirmed again as a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series, with an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) rating of 95 out of 100. In December, Newmont was one of only two resource companies named in the Drucker Institute’s ranking of the top 250 best managed companies, posting high scores in the areas of employee engagement and development, and social responsibility.
These recognitions round out our ranking as the mining industry’s overall leader in sustainability by the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for an unprecedented three years in a row.
Mr. Goldberg extended a message of appreciation to Newmont’s global team, saying, “Thank you for your ongoing – and effective – work to establish Newmont as the world’s most profitable and responsible gold business.”
