As a result, we strive to establish good and long-term relationships with our stakeholders, invest in mitigating the impact of our operations, work with high ethical standards, maintain transparent management, and actively contribute to environmental, biodiversity, and sustainable development advancements.

Our Approach

GMC is a leading responsible manganese producer. Our commitment to responsible manganese production is visible in everything we do, driven by our core values of safety, tolerance, and respect. One of GMC’s strategies is to incorporate sustainability into its business by building economic, social, and environmental legacies and mitigating the impact of its operations.

The company’s sustainability approach is therefore based on four pillars: health and safety, environment, and social responsibility. These pillars tell us that we must care for our human resources, be environmental stewards when we explore, build, and operate, and repurpose or rehabilitate the land after mine closure. We must contribute our fair share to local and national economies, including through payment of taxes and royalties, and do so transparently to preserve the profitability of our own business.
