SUSTAINABILITY Policy

The directors and management are focused on ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Company and its business to benefit its shareholders and other stakeholders.

Sustainability is supported by the Group’s values; operating in an environmentally responsible manner by continually improving circular and low-carbon operations, prioritising the health and safety and development of employees, conducting business with integrity throughout the Group and supply chain as well as actively engaging and contributing to the local community around the Caijiaying Mine.

SLAVERY Policy

Whilst section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 does not apply Griffin Mining Ltd, as it is incorporated in Bermuda and does not do business in the United Kingdom, the Griffin Mining Ltd Group of Companies seeks to comply with international best practice as well as local legislation with regard, inter alia, human rights and the environment.  Griffin strives to create a safe and harmonious work environment, strictly prohibiting the employment or use of unpaid labour or child labour, opposes any form of forced labour and requires suppliers and vendors to implement the same employment standards.  

Griffin strictly enforces the national minimum working age regulations and verifies the identity and age of candidates at the time of recruitment.  Hebei Hua Ao regularly evaluates and assesses suppliers to ensure they are fulfilling their environmental and social responsibilities.  This includes ensuring Griffin does not deal with any supplier involved in any way with slavery.
