General Disclosures | Specific Disclosures (Newmont Priority Issues)

As a founding member of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), Newmont commits to uphold the ICMM’s 10 Principles for Sustainable Development and to report in accordance with the GRI framework, which is recognized as the international standard for sustainability reporting and used by thousands of companies worldwide.
The content in this report is mapped to the five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we established as our “priority goals” due to their alignment with our business and our ability to have an impact on outcomes in these areas. These SDGs are cross-referenced in the following GRI Content Index.
We developed this report in accordance with the GRI Standards Core option, which focuses on the key risks and opportunities significant to our business and stakeholders. This report also includes indicators from the GRI Mining and Metals Sector disclosures.
We engaged Bureau Veritas North America Inc. to independently assure our report for inclusivity, completeness, responsiveness and accuracy on material and significant sustainability matters.
