Sustainability to us is the ability to create a net positive impact in the communities in which we operate and it underpins every step of our development process, from early-stage exploration through to site closure and remediation. Lomiko has conviction in a hub and spoke approach as we continue building a new energy company in Quebec, Canada: for the new energy vehicle to drive, the wheel must see an equal amount of opportunity and engagement created with each spoke of community, environment, investor and public stakeholders. We plan to provide rewarding employment opportunities that build transferable skills that people can rely on, well beyond the duration of the organization’s life-of-mine.
Canadian critical minerals must be sourced in harmony with the surrounding communities, our contractors, employees and shareholders with the goal of creating the smallest footprint possible while actively contributing to a sustainable, renewable energy society.
Lomiko is UL ECOLOGO® certified
ECOLOGO® (UL) 2723, Certification for Mineral Exploration Companies, offers a standard by which to evaluate mineral exploration companies and their service providers on factors such as environmental impact, safety of people in the mineral exploration process, the well-being of impacted communities, fair and ethical business practices, compliance with applicable legal requirements, and efficient use of financial resources. The certification provides credible, third-party verification by a globally recognized and trusted ecolabelling program.
Lomiko began the accreditation process in June 2021, successfully completing it in March 2022. In completing the process, Lomiko demonstrated that it met all the responsible development indicators required to obtain the bilingual UL ECOLOGO® Certification for Mineral Exploration, which is made available to companies in Quebec through the Quebec Mining Exploration Association (QMEA) and is currently only available in Canada in Quebec. The certification applies to contractors, sub-contractors and service providers to a mineral exploration company. The certification also includes registration in UL’s SPOT sustainable product database.
The Company is very proud of this accomplishment and intends to continue working to promote this certification and its advantages, helping to make it a key objective for other exploration companies in the mineral exploration sector.
