Sustainability is at the heart of our core values at Lomiko, and underpins every step of our development process, from early-stage exploration through to site closure and remediation. We believe that our source of critical minerals benefits the electric vehicle revolution and renewable energy storage. However, we never forget that these minerals must be sourced in harmony with the surrounding communities, with the goal of creating the smallest footprint possible.
At Lomiko, our focus is on the sustainability of the full value chain, from pit to product. We believe that it is counterintuitive to provide materials to a sustainable, renewable energy industry if we cannot do so in a sustainable, environmentally conscious way. That value chain integrates sustainability not only at every step and in all aspects of Lomiko’s activities, it also must be embraced and implemented by all our stakeholders, including contractors and their subcontractors and suppliers. Lomiko’s vision of sustainability is that we are all an integral part of the same socio-economic ecosystem and must all live up to the same core values. Their commitment to safety and sustainability must be equal to our own.
The value of the critical minerals sourced from our operations will be shared by all our stakeholders – not just our investors – but also the communities in which we will operate, where 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.
