Sandfire recognises that we have a role to play in contributing to global sustainable development. Our policies outline our commitment to conducting our business responsibly, from exploration through to mine closure, so that our people are safe and well supported, local communities’ benefit from our presence, and we demonstrate strong environmental stewardship.

Our goal is for sustainability to be part of every decision we make. We believe that non-financial performance is connected to long term value creation and that this is best effected when sustainability is embedded throughout our business.


Sandfire’s sustainability strategy supports the Company’s purpose of ‘Creating value through opportunity’ and helps to facilitate the achievement of our Strategic Growth Plan.

We have articulated six long-term environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities in how we operate. These ensure that we are well placed to continue to build strong, lasting relationships with stakeholders, deliver on our commitments, develop resources responsibly and drive innovation in our people and industry — all key for creating long-term growth and value.
