Statement of support

Bob Vassie, Managing Director and CEO at St Barbara Limited
In 2018, the Company had a strong year in sustainability, with highlights including our second consecutive national award for gender diversity excellence and progressing further in our projects that extend mine-life and improve our energy efficiency. This year St Barbara has responded to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) for the first time, joined the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). We recognise the risk of climate change as defined in the Paris 2015 Climate Change Agreement and our disclosure is aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure.

Engagement with the EITI

St Barbara announced its support to the EITI in September 2018 as part of its annual sustainability report. The company endorses the aims and methodology of the EITI Standard and it is a financial supporter of the EITI International Secretariat. The company reports annually according to the EITI Standard in Papua New Guinea.

Strengthening transparency

St Barbara has used the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards to guide its sustainability disclosures. In its annual Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act report (ESTMA) St Barbara publicly discloses payments to governments. St Barbara's 2018 ESTMA report is available here

The company has also developed a comprehensive framework of anti-bribery and anti-corruption measures to prevent and detect bribery and corruption, comprising an integrated set of policies, training, audits, procedures and registers. The publication of St Barbara’s sustainability report can be seen here
