Responsible Mining

Our Approach

B2Gold is committed to responsible mining and demonstrating leadership by going beyond industry standards and continuing to raise the bar on our performance.

Our integrated approach to responsible mining is to work within the social, economic and environmental contexts in a way that delivers positive and sustainable outcomes for our business and for all our stakeholders. Our approach and commitment are reflected across the company starting with our Social Responsibility and Human Rights, Occupational Health and Safety, Environmental and Biodiversity policies and our Board’s Health, Safety, Environment, Social and Security Committee Charter.

“When I consider B2Gold’s role in sustainable development, I am pleased that the discourse has shifted from ‘making mining sustainable’ to ‘mining’s role in sustainable development.”

Clive Johnson, President & CEO, B2Gold Corp.
