Kinross Gold Corporation released its Corporate Responsibility Report, a comprehensive account of the Company’s commitment to sustainable mining and transparency in 2014 and 2015.

“Mining responsibly is integral to our business strategy and our approach to operational excellence,” said J. Paul Rollinson, President and CEO. “The mining industry has a unique opportunity to make a positive and lasting contribution to the well-being of employees and host communities. At Kinross, we believe our long term strength is underpinned by our ability to transform that opportunity into real and sustainable returns for all our stakeholders.”
