royalty and streaming-related assets across 5 continents and 10 commodities
We play a key role in the energy transition through investing in mining operations that provide the commodities required for the energy transition and a sustainable future.
Ecora Resources believes that investment success and long-term value can only be achieved through sustainable and responsible investment with a strong focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. As a result, we are committed to integrating ESG considerations into our strategic decision making and capital allocation process and corporate behaviours.
We have developed a new framework for Ecora’s sustainability strategy that clearly communicates the areas that are of key focus. Our sustainability activities have been divided up to sit underneath two key pillars: Responsible business and Responsible investors. Underneath these we have identified six priority areas under which we will report.
Being a responsible business means looking after our people. At Ecora, we promote health and safety, well-being, diversity and inclusion, and continuous improvement and development of our employee culture and skillset. We are also committed to operating our business with the highest standards of ethics and integrity and we proactively seek to align our frameworks with globally recognised initiatives such as the UNGC.
Long-term value for all our stakeholders can only be achieved through sustainable and responsible investment. We look to finance resources that enable a sustainable future, and to influence others in the mining sector towards sustainable outcomes.
In July 2022 we acquired a high-quality portfolio of royalties over advanced development stage copper and nickel projects from South32 for ~$185 million.
The investment provides almost 100% exposure to copper, nickel, cobalt and other commodities that are required for a sustainable future, following the run-off of the Group’s metallurgical coal exposure, anticipated in 2026.
