Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Vision for 2030

A company that understands and respects the traditions and culture of indigenous peoples

Approach and Policy

Mine development, smelting, and refining can have a considerable effect on the environment and local communities and there is a risk that the rights of the indigenous peoples living on the land, who generally occupy a vulnerable position in society, will be violated. Therefore, we think it is most important to proceed while gaining the understanding and trust of these indigenous peoples. We comply with international standards such as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and collaborate with local governments and other stakeholders while also maintaining an ongoing dialogue with local indigenous peoples based on an understanding of their traditions and culture.
