Erdene’s approach to community relations is based on:

  • Shared value
  • Mutual responsibility
  • Honesty, trust and openness
  • Involvement and participation
  • Transparency and accountability

Erdene identifies local socio-economic needs through initial scoping studies, baseline assessments and potential impact evaluations. As with environmental impact studies, socio-economic research is updated periodically throughout a given mineral project.

Erdene commits to investing a portion of the resources it allocates to each minerals project into local community development initiatives. These “community investments” help Erdene fulfill its voluntary commitment to good corporate citizenship and earn its social license to operate.

Erdene’s community investments seek to build the capacity of local stakeholders and institutions in the areas of education, health, livelihoods and the environment. The purpose of Erdene’s involvement in each of these areas is:

  • To enhance learning resources and opportunities
  • To promote public health and well-being
  • To improve the viability and security of local livelihoods
  • To minimize and offset any environmental impacts
