|2016 TARGETS||AT A GLANCE||2016 STATUS|
|10% reduction from 2015 in Total Recordable Incident (TRI)* rate (target of 1.28)||Despite challenges, we have achieved record health and safety performance. With a 2016 TRI rate of 1.18, we beat our target (1.28) by 7%.|
|10% reduction of the average value from 2014 to 2015 in the rate of incidents resulting in Days Away, Restricted or Transferred Duty (DART)**||
With a 2016 DART rate of 0.23, we beat our target (0.62) by 63%. This year’s rate is a significant accomplishment, representing a 56% reduction since 2015.
|Launch our partnership with Global Affairs Canada, the Government of Burkina Faso, and Canadian Company Cowater||The “Eau et croissance economique durable au Sahel” project – also known as the Triangle d’eau project – was officially launched in February 2016 in partnership with the Government of Canada and Cowater International. The project expanded in 2017 with the inclusion of One Drop as a donor and implementation partner.|
|Advance Local Procurement practices across our operations||Both Essakane and Rosebel made significant progress on establishing strong dialogue with local suppliers, adjusting internal procurement procedures, facilitating greater market access and finding appropriate partners to build capacity throughout the local supply chain. Work to formalize local procurement programs across operations continued.|
|Achieve a minimum Towards Sutainable Mining (TSM)*** Level A for all TSM indicators||In 2016, our three operating mines, Westwood, Essakane and Rosebel, met or exceeded a Level A ranking in their results across all of the six protocols of TSM: Aboriginal and community outreach, crisis management, safety and health, tailings management, biodiversity conservation management, and energy and greenhouse gas emissions management.|
|Maximize identified opportunities to reduce energy use and improve efficiency||We have advanced negotiations with partners to construct and operationalize a solar/diesel plant in our Essakane operations. Construction of the plant began in mid-2017; commissioning is expected by December 2017.|
|Advance mine reclamation and closure planning at our operations and legacy sites||Updated closure plans were submitted to the Quebec Government for approval in September 2016.|
|Complete environmental assessments for the Côté Gold Project in northern Ontario||Environmental Assessments were completed and approved by the Government of Ontario in December 2016 and by the federal government in April 2016.|
|Coordinate global conference for IAMGOLD's global Health, Safety, and Sustainability team and further define company-wide priorities and associated action plans||IAMGOLD re-started its annual Health, Safety and Sustainability team meetings with an initial session in November 2016. A number of priorities were identified including updating our Sustainability standards, guidelines and procedures to support implementation of our existing Sustainability Policy.|
* The TRI (Total Recordable Incident) rate reflects injuries and illnesses resulting in DART plus all medical cases excluding first aid.
** DART (Days Away, Restricted or Transferred Duty) reflects injuries and illnesses resulting in days away, restricted duty or job transfer.
*** TSM (Towards Sustainable Mining) refers to a set of mandatory protocols for responsible mining developed by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) for its membership. As members of MAC, we adhere to the TSM protocols and standards.
