|2017 TARGETS||AT A GLANCE||2017 STATUS|
|Reduce Total Recordable Incident (TRI)* rate by 10% from 2016 (target of 1.06)||We missed our reduction target with a 2017 TRI rate of 1.43. We have implemented a plan to improve our health and safety performance.|
|Reduce the rate of incidents resulting in Day Away, Restricted or Transferred Duty (DART)** by 10% from 2015 and 2016 (target of 0.35)||
We missed our reduction target with a 2017 DART rate of 0.52. We have implemented a plan to improve our health and safety performance.
|Advance use of solar energy in Essakane by commissioning and operationalizing the solar plant||The solar plant in Essakane was commissioned in 2017 and became operational in Q2 2018. It will lower our CO2 emissions by around 18,500 tonnes and create 40 new operational jobs. A percentage of the revenue from this project will go towards local development projects.|
|Initiate the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) in Saramacca in parallel to the closure plan update in Rosebel||Both the ESIA and the Closure Plan update process was initiated in 2017 and completed in 2018.|
|Commence Environmental Effects Review and start permitting in support of the Côté Gold project in Ontario||IAMGOLD has commenced the Environmental Effects Review (EER) and other permitting applications and plans to submit the EER and permitting appilcations in the fall of 2018. We hope to start construction on the Côté project by early 2019.|
|Finalize approval for Westwood and Doyon closure and rehabilitation plans||Westwood and Doyon closure and rehabilitation plans were finalized and approved by the Quebec government in 2017. We hope to update the closure plans for Essakane and Rosebel in 2018.|
|Update Sustainability and Health and Safety Standards and initiate implementation action plan||Both the Sustainability and Health and Safety Standards were updated last year. As part of the implementation of the Sustainability Standard, a cross-organizational gap assessment was initiated in 2017 to be conducted in 2018.|
|Achieve a minimum Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM)*** Level A for all TSM indicators||We did not achieve a minimum Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Level A for all TSM indicators. The only site to achieve a Level A across all indicators is our Essakane site. IAMGOLD has conducted a company-wide sustainability gap assessment to identify areas for improvement.|
* 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.
