Our ESG Commitment
Essential Metals endorses the following global ESG reporting frameworks with which to prepare an inaugural ESG report in 2022.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the world's most widely used sustainability reporting framework. GRI Standards represent global best practice for reporting publicly on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts and are widely referenced by Australian mining and exploration companies.
As a global list of key material topics for our planet, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have become a global reference for sustainability reporting policy. The SDGs call for worldwide action amongst governments, business and civil society. They present an opportunity for business-led solutions and technologies to be developed and implemented to address the world’s biggest sustainable development challenges. SDGs are also widely referenced by Australian mining and exploration companies.
