Norge Mining Publishes Responsible Business Report 2021
Norge Mining Ltd., an Anglo-Norwegian mineral exploration company with a world-class Critical Raw Material resource in southwest Norway, announced the release of its Responsible Business Report for 2021.
Norge Mining is concentrating its efforts on three EU Critical Raw Materials: phosphate, vanadium, and titanium. These materials are critical to Europe's strategic interests, such as in the green energy transition and food production. The need to produce them in Europe is pressing, both to assure supply security and to meet ESG goals, which demand companies focus on the provenance of materials to ensure they are ethically and sustainably sourced.
Norge Mining is committed to the highest standards of responsible stewardship to carry out its goals to transition from exploration to development and production. Alignment with worldwide sustainability programmes and disclosure guidelines are critical components of the Company's plan to become a strong and responsible mining and processing company.
John Vergopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of Norge Mining, said:
“This is our second Responsible Business Report, and it outlines the significant progress achieved during 2021 across the Company but particularly from the perspective of sustainability. As a natural resources company, we are still at the exploration stage, but the world-class deposits that we have discovered in southwest Norway mean we are determined to have processes and policies in place to meet the highest standards of sustainable practice in readiness for the mining phase.
“The requirement to produce Critical Raw Materials in Europe has never been more urgent, highlighted by Europe’s dependence on Russian energy and phosphate. Norge Mining’s plans are focused on the development of a sustainable mining industry in Norway, embracing the environment, job creation and positive local and European impact.”
