Society (SO)

Material aspects on SOCIETY

The majority of aspects deemed to be material with regard to Society concern Boliden’s relationship with external stakeholders, and are at the core of Boliden’s ambition both to promote sustainability in the industry and to be the first sustainable link in the metal’s value chain. They may also have a significant impact of the perceptions of Boliden and determine Boliden’s licence to operate and ability to develop its business. These aspects are Local Communities, Anti-Corruption, Anti-Competitive Behaviour, Compliance and Resettlement. Industrial Operations change the landscape and Closure Planning is, therefore, an additional important factor for consideration during the licensing process.
