Statement of support

In Sherritt’s Sustainability Framework, we make an explicit commitment to transparency: to provide stakeholders with timely and accurate information on the impacts and benefits of our mining-related activities and management practices. The Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI) is an important means of bringing this commitment to life.

Engagement with the EITI

Since 2008 Sherritt has been actively involved in Madagascar's EITI work through its Ambatovy nickel operation. The company has contributed to EITI reconciliation reports since the EITI reporting process was launched in 2010. The company supported Madagascar's candidacy and made public presentations to inform external stakeholders about the EITI. Furthermore, the company has had a representative sitting on Madagascar's EITI multi-stakeholder group, representing the interests of the extractive industry sector in the EITI National Council.

Sherritt has expressed that they will continue to focus considerable effort on supporting EITI implementation in Madagascar and that it will seek out and participate in appropriate opportunities to promote the EITI more broadly.
