“We’re pleased to release our second annual Sustainability Report which outlines our performance and achievements related to ESG practices.   Silver continues to be a metal that is a key component of the emerging green economy.  Our partnership with the Town of Parral to help remediate their land produces silver at a low carbon footprint of 0.006 tCO2e per ounce of silver equivalent produced,”  said Brad Langille, President and CEO.  “Over the past year, we have made substantial progress toward our ESG goals. We took action to improve our governance, which our stakeholders told us was a priority. We promoted dialogue internally to discuss how we could improve our business even further, including topics related to ESG.  Our philosophy has always been to do business in a way that not only helps our communities and employees thrive, but that also protects natural ecosystems while increasing long term shareholder value.”
