Responsible Mining – Our Core Value
The theme for our 2020 Sustainability Report is “Small Footprint, Large Benefit.” Throughout the report, we demonstrate Hecla’s small environmental footprint and our efforts to continually reduce our impact while providing a large economic and social benefit to our local communities.
Our report outlines our environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals, performance, and focus areas. For the third year, Hecla has benchmarked our performance against the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Metals and Mining standards. 2020 is also the first year that we are reporting against relevant aspects of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
