Sustainability is core to who we are and a pillar of our company strategy. We recognize that climate change is real and are committed to mitigating our climate-related impacts, including helping to build climate change resilience in our communities.
Our Climate Change Strategy
Two years ago, we introduced Eldorado’s Climate Change Strategy to support our vision to build a safe, sustainable, high-quality business in the mining sector, creating a positive impact today and for future generations.
Since then, we’ve taken major steps to operationalize energy and greenhouse gas emissions standards within our Sustainability Integrated Management System. Our initial target is mitigate our Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by an amount equal to 30% of our 2020 baseline from operating mines by 2030, and our management and site-level teams have collaborated to define achievable opportunities to help us meet that goal.
2022 Climate Change and GHG Emissions Report
In our latest report, we’re pleased to introduce Eldorado’s GHG Emissions Target Achievement Pathway, which comprises four levers:
- Operational efficiencies and continuous improvement
- Technologies, processes and energy generation
- Grid decarbonization
- Mine shutdown and operational changes
Other highlights from the 2022 report include:
Planning for the Future
Looking ahead, we expect to consider climate-related risks, opportunities and impacts of our transformative Skouries gold-copper project in Greece before it enters production as a world-class mine in 2025. As we look to progress our implementation of the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) over the coming years, we will further define how Skouries supports all facets of our Climate Change Strategy.
We’re excited about the hard work our global teams have put in to deliver measurable progress toward our decarbonization targets and enhancing climate resilience.
