Sustainability and ESG Efforts

Freeport-McMoRan is a leading responsible copper producer - Foremost in Copper. We are committed to meeting the highest standards of environmental stewardship across our operations, respecting human rights in all of our business practices and prioritizing the health, safety and well-being of our workforce and host communities where we operate. We recognize that the long-term success of the company and sustainable value creation are dependent on effective management, integration and governance of key environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

Engagement with stakeholders around key industry topics is an integral part of how we conduct our business. We believe that effective communication can help reduce sustainability-related risks and create opportunities for mutual benefit. We have been working with an external firm specializing in stakeholder engagement to strategically approach stakeholders around subjects such as revenue transparency, human rights, indigenous peoples, water resources and community development. This effort includes mapping stakeholders by subject area and geography at the international and local levels. This helps us identify the key foundations, NGOs, community leaders and other groups with whom we can interact and learn from with mutual interest.
