Our commitment

IOC’s sustainable development commitment is founded on our 50+ years of experience in operating a world-class, socially and environmentally responsible operation. 

Our people are our most valuable resource - so their health, safety and wellness is our number one business priority.

The communities of Labrador West and Sept-Îles, our Aboriginal partners, and the three levels of government are also core to IOC’s focus on building relationships.


Our approach to sustainable development is guided by Rio Tinto’s global code of business conduct – The Way We Work, which addresses the many aspects of corporate social responsibility and sustainable development.

In 2018 IOC updated our Health, Safety, Environment and Communities (HSEC) policy. Our new HSEC policy provides all IOC employees and contractors with a clear set of values and objectives for the effective management of Health, Safety, Environment, Community and Quality performance.


In addition, IOC’s Quality management system complies with the requirements of ISO 9001 : 2015 for our port operations in Sept-Iles and ISO 17025 for our labratory located in Labrador City. Our compliance with these two internationally recognized standards provides our regulators, stakeholders and customers with the assurance that we are delivering on our HSEC committments.
