Approach

Wheaton is one of the world’s largest precious metals streaming companies. We serve the mining industry by providing funding solutions to mine operators. It is our responsibility to ensure that we partner with mine operators that share our values and belief in responsible mining. Our values guide every decision we make as a company and as individual employees. Wheaton’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program is driven by proactive initiatives that are monitored and evaluated to continuously improve our engagement practices.

To further demonstrate our commitment to corporate sustainability, Wheaton joined the United Nations Global Compact in September 2019. As a participant, Wheaton has committed to voluntarily aligning its operations and strategy with the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take actions that support broader UN goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals.  Additionally, Wheaton is a signatory of the World Gold Council’s Responsible Gold Mining Principles and Conflict-Free Gold Standard.

As part of this commitment, before entering into an agreement with a mine operator, we exercise a thorough Due Diligence Process guided by our Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") Investment Principles. The process includes an extensive technical, financial, and economic analysis, and a thorough review of ESG risks. In addition, ongoing due diligence processes are deployed with regard to each asset where the Company has a streaming agreement in place. By addressing ESG factors in our investment decisions, we are able to better manage risks and generate sustainable, long-term value for all of our stakeholders.
