Welcome to Boliden´s Sustainability Index 2021


Boliden is a listed metals company with focus on sustainable development. Boliden’s core competence is within the fields of exploration, mining, smelting and metals recycling. We operate five mining units and five smelters in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Ireland. 


This Sustainability Index is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core Option. It also constitutes Boliden’s Communication on Progress (COP) and therefore contains references to Boliden’s performance in relation to the UN Global Compact’s ten principles; the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD, supported by Boliden since 2019); the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB, supported by Boliden since 2021) and the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM, where Boliden has been a member since 2021) principles.
