Environment

Zimplats recognises that the scale of its operational activities inevitably impact on the environment through land disturbance, resource consumption and pollution. Responsible environmental stewardship is essential in the management of environmental impacts and of our relationships with host communities, regulators and other stakeholders. Our strategic focus is to proactively prevent, mitigate, minimise and remediate environmental impacts on natural resources and the communities around our operations. We work in accordance with certified environmental management system (ISO14001:2015) which is integrated into BMS. Regulators are important in our environmental management approach and we engage and work together in managing and monitoring environmental impacts and in complying with relevant regulations. Our strategic approach to managing environmental impact and conserving natural resources Our strategic approach to managing environmental impact and conserving natural resources revolves around three key areas: compliance obligations, resource management and mitigating impact.

Our environmental policy provides a framework for responsible and environmentally friendly exploration, mining and processing operations.
