ESG Social Responsibility
At Calibre we are governed by our Social Responsibility Policy, which calls for respectful and open engagement with all stakeholders. Our policy steers us towards making positive and sustainable contributions in the communities in which we are working.
As a modern mining company, we acknowledge that our role in terms of social responsibility covers all aspects of our activities, including health and safety and environmental and social concerns from a rights-based approach. It also covers all stages of mining, from exploration to closure and reclamation.
The Company has been progressing its inaugural Corporate Sustainability Report or ESG Report, which will be published in Q2 2021.
Water Unites Us
Proactive and Collaborative Water Source Protection Program: Rancho Grande
Clean water is vital; Calibre, working together with the Center for an Understanding with Nature (CEN) and the local population, initiated a water source preservation program in 2019 in Rancho Grande (Matagalpa, Nicaragua), contributing to the communities’ sustainable development.
Calibre has established Performance Standards for Community Engagement. Our standards comply with the principles for good practices endorsed by the International Finance Corporation and the World Gold Council and are compatible with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
Calibre Resettlement: a fair, transparent and consensual process
Applying the highest standards and due diligence, Calibre conducted several studies to determine the feasibility of a resettlement project in the communities of Cebadilla and Santa Pancha -Pozo 7, in the Limon Mining District.
Co-existence with Artisanal Mining
Artisanal and small-scale miners are legitimate stakeholders. In this sense, Calibre seeks ongoing and wide-ranging engagement and interactions with these stakeholders, under the mutual understanding that industrial mining can be carried out in harmony with artisanal mining, as long as it is done in a safe and responsible manner.
