The Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) programme which commenced in August 2016 includes a full-scale review of Metal Tiger’s global social and environmental policies, comprising continuous monitoring and review of worldwide subsidiaries and investments to ensure consistently high standards are employed across the Company’s Active Equity and Project interests.
Metal Tiger is committed to conducting its business in an efficient and responsible manner, in line with current best practice guidelines for the mining and mineral exploration sectors and international investment. The Company integrates environmental, social and health and safety considerations to maintain our ‘social licence to operate’ in all its investment activities.
For the Company’s Direct Projects Division, Metal Tiger has adopted and seeks alignment with the best practices and principals of e3 Plus: A Framework for Responsible Explorationas set out by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and the International Council on Mining and Metals Sustainable Development Framework(the ICMM 10 Principles).
Metal Tiger’s management maintains a close dialogue with local communities via its joint venture partners. Where issues are raised, the Board takes the matters seriously and, where appropriate, steps are taken to ensure that these are integrated into the Company’s strategy.
Careful attention is given to ensure that all exploration activity within the Company’s investments is performed in an environmentally responsible manner and abides by all relevant mining and environmental acts. Metal Tiger takes a conscientious role in all its operations and is aware of its social responsibility and its environmental duty.
Both the engagement with local communities and the performance of all activities in an environmentally and socially responsible way are closely monitored by the Board and ensure that ethical values and behaviours are recognised.
The Company has adopted a comprehensive anti-corruption and anti-bribery policy to ensure compliance with the UK Bribery Act 2010.
