Sustainable Development policy

Ramu NiCo aims at growing into a major international company focusing on the development, operation and management of nonferrous mining projects. We recognize that sustainability and business success are mutually reinforcing, and that to become a world-class mining company is inseparable from our commitment to protect the environment, care for our employees and benefit the communities impacted by the mine. 

Currently, achieving smooth operation is the single most important task of our overall sustainability program. A strong and viable business growth will in turn greatly enhance our ability in further contributing to the sustainable development of the community, the employees and all stakeholders.

Our Sustainable Development Policy Guidance outlines the company's specific commitments. We see it as both a reflection of our current sustainability performance and roadmap and vision for our future progress.
