Core Purpose and Values

Our core purpose is to lead the world in generating value through responsible mining.

This goal is not just about profits or growth – although they are important. It recognizes that our success is relevant not only to our shareholders, but also to our people and the communities in which we operate. Everyone in our organization has an important role to play in bringing this purpose to life.

At Kinross, our purpose is supported by our values. These values determine how we manage conflicting business priorities, programs, policies and objectives. The ability to "bring to life" our values through our day-to-actions signifies who we are, why we are different and why we have staying power.

Our four values are:

  • Putting people first
  • Outstanding corporate citizenship
  • High performance culture
  • Rigorous financial discipline

Annually Kinross celebrates and recognizes employees who reflect and live our four values through our Living Our Values Awards (LOVA). Chosen from employee nominations, our global winners are invited to Toronto where they are presented with the award at a gala attended by our top leaders.


Corporate Responsibility

Our corporate responsibility vision:

We have a responsibility to conduct our operations in a manner that is safe for our employees, protective of the environment, and beneficial to the host countries and communities where our operations are located.

Our Ten Guiding Principles for Corporate Responsibility articulate our commitment to responsible mining. These principles guide our business in all critical areas – in maintaining our license to operate with host communities, in accessing and permitting new deposits with host governments, and in attracting investment from equity markets increasingly sensitive to risk factors associated with environmental and social performance.
