Environmental standard disclosures (GRI 300)

Environmental sustainability is a precondition for successful mining and smelting ­operations. Boliden’s environmental strategy is based on three component parts: Environmental ­Impact, Resource Efficiency, and Credibility. These elements address the areas of greatest ­importance for Boliden’s license to operate and our long-term competitiveness.
