Our environmental commitment

IOC recognizes that the mining industry has a direct impact on the environment. We extract ore from the ground. We process it using energy and water. We generate waste, emissions, and greenhouse gases. Through the entire process, we recognize that we have a responsibility to minimize, and eliminate where possible, these impacts. While the fist step to continuously improving environmental performance is awareness, at IOC we go much further. Acting on the commitments in our Health, Safety, Environment, Communities and Quality (HSECQ) Policy, we assess our impact on ecosystems, evaluate future risks, design management systems to mitigate impacts, establish challenging objectives, and measure our performance against key success indicators.

Example of actions taken to reduce our environmental impact:

  • Air Quality Improvement Program for Labrador City
  • Land Rehabilitation Project
  • Soil and Groudwater Clean up from Historical Contamination
  • Greenhouse Gas Quantification by Product
  • Committee Table de concertation sur la qualité de l’air in Sept-Iles
