Our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate are the key ingredients of Richmont's many years of successful gold production in Canada, and we are committed to building and maintaining these relationships in the future. To do so, Richmont believes in promoting a culture of responsible performance, in which we operate in a sustainable manner and are accountable to all of our stakeholders. At the heart of Richmont's commitment to responsibility, integrity and accountability are our four corporate values of Family, Health & Safety, Growth and Team Work.
Richmont's sustainability approach is based on our principles that we will uphold to protect the health and safety of our employees and contractors, as well as the environment and communities affected by our activities. With this approach, increased value is created for our shareholders by operating in a safe, socially and environmentally responsible manner while contributing to the prosperity of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate.
