Over the years, Polyus has made significant progress in embedding sustainability across our operations. As a major enterprise, we must work responsibly to ensure that Polyus continues to create value for all of our stakeholders. This involves a commitment to developing our employees and protecting the broader communities where we operate as well as the natural environment.

Take a survey
Polyus would like to invite you to complete a short survey to identify the material topics to be addressed in its 2023 Sustainability Report (Report). It will take you approximately three to five minutes.

Polyus annually conducts a materiality assessment to identify the most important topics for disclosure in the Report. In accordance with GRI non-financial reporting standards, we invite you to assess the positive and negative impacts of Polyus in the context of each topic. ‘Impact’ refers to the effect Polyus has or could have on the economy, environment, and people, including on their human rights.

Your input is greatly appreciated for the 2023 Sustainability Report!

Polyus’ Sustainability Reports for recent years can be found on the website in the ‘ESG Data & Reports’ section.

Documents and reports

The Water Report presents the Company’s comprehensive approach to water management, the assessment and management of water resource-related risks, as well as stakeholder-inclusive practices. The Report covers Polyus’ production assets that require a substantial quantity of water resources for their operations and which, therefore, are their major consumers. An important objective of this Report is to present the national statutory framework that Polyus is operating in, to describe its internal processes, controls and monitoring mechanisms attributed, among others, by national obligations, and international best standards and practices.
