Maclean’s has ranked Kinross Gold as the top mining company on the list of Top 50 Most Socially Responsible Companies in Canada developed with the help of Sustainalytics, an independent sustainability investment research firm. The ranking, which appears in the June 15th edition of the magazine, comes after Kinross was recognized earlier this month as one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens for the sixth consecutive year by Corporate Knights, a media and research firm that promotes social responsibility in the private sector.

“Operating in a socially responsible and sustainable manner is about partnership,” said Paul Rollinson, Kinross president and CEO. “We approach that partnership on the basis of respect and a desire to contribute to the prosperity and well-being of the communities where we operate. These rankings reflect the dedication of our employees to transforming that commitment into tangible results when it comes to everything from local hiring and engaging local suppliers to employing environmental best practices.”
