“As we celebrate our 100th year, Newmont’s commitment to sustainable and responsible mining has never been stronger. Our sustainability report provides a comprehensive review of our safety, environmental and social performance,” said Newmont’s President and CEO Tom Palmer. “With this report we offer a transparent review of how we work toward making a positive difference in the lives of our employees, stakeholders, business partners and host communities around the world.”

Highlights of Newmont’s 2020 Sustainability Report:

  • Commitment to health and safety: Achieved the best safety and financial performance in the Company’s history. Investments in our Fatality Risk Management program and a focus on the critical controls that prevent fatalities resulted in Newmont reducing potentially significant events and achieving the lowest injury rate in its history.
  • Response to COVID-19: Activated the Company’s Rapid Response program to preserve the health and safety of the workforce, host and nearby Indigenous communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through Newmont’s COVID-19 Global Community Support Fund, the Company has supported communities’ management and recovery from the pandemic in three key areas of need: workforce and community health, food security, and local economic resilience.
  • Addressing climate change: Furthered Newmont’s commitment to environmental stewardship by announcing industry-leading climate change targets of more than a 30 percent reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions and a 30 percent reduction in Scope 3 missions by 2030, with an ultimate aspiration of being net zero carbon by 2050. Newmont has committed $500 million over the next five years to support efforts to meeting these goals.
  • Continued value sharing: Newmont continued to play an important role in creating economic value in host communities and jurisdictions, contributing $7.7 billion in economic value for its workforce, host communities and jurisdictions through wages and benefits, operating costs, capital spend, royalties, and taxes. This also includes spending $3.9 billion with local and national suppliers and investing $20.5 million in community projects and providing ongoing opportunities for local and Indigenous employment.

Newmont’s sustainability efforts continue to be recognized by several leading independent organizations:

  • Recognized as top-ranked gold miner for the sixth consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) while continuing to be recognized as the top mining company on FORTUNE’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies;
  • Earned a score of “A-“ from CDP for the CDP Climate assessment, reflecting the coordinated action on climate issues;
  • Listed as 6th overall and the top mining company in 3BL’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens;
  • Achieved a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equity Index for the Company’s work in creating an inclusive workplace for LGBTQ+ employees, and was included in Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index (GEI) for Newmont’s efforts to advance women in the workplace; and
  • Ranked as the top gold miner in Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies for 2020 and as the second most transparent company in the S&P 500.

Newmont’s 2020 Sustainability Report is written in accordance with the GRI Standards Core option, the GRI Mining and Metals Sector Supplement, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Metals and Mining protocol, and is externally assured. Additionally, this report aligns with two new disclosure frameworks, ICMM’s Mining Principles’ Performance Expectations and the World Gold Council’s Responsible Gold Mining Principles.

The report continues to demonstrate Newmont’s commitment to transparency and accountability on its most material sustainability topics. To support the investment community in their understanding of the report, and to provide decision-useful information for stakeholders, Newmont will be hosting a webcast on July 8 to discuss the contents of its suite of sustainability reports. The full 2020 Sustainability Report, along with the ESG data tables and a comprehensive GRI/SASB content index, is available for download on Newmont’s website.

 Janssen Announces Results from Phase 3 MAIA Study Showing Significant Overall Survival Benefits for Treatment with DARZALEX®▼ (daratumumab) in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma Who are Transplant Ineligible12.6.2021 10:01:00 EEST | Press release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced overall survival (OS) results from the Phase 3 MAIA (NCT02252172) study showing the addition of DARZALEX® ▼(daratumumab) to lenalidomide and dexamethasone (D-Rd) resulted in a statistically significant survival benefit over lenalidomide and dexamethasone (Rd) alone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) who were ineligible for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) and were treated to progression.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing and will be presented as a late-breaking abstract during the EHA Virtual Congress (Abstract #LB1901). The prespecified interim analysis for OS found that after a median follow-up of nearly five years (56.2 months), a 32 percent reduction in the risk of death was observed in the D-Rd treatment arm vs. Rd arm.1 Median OS was not reached in either arm [hazard ratio (HR): 0.68, 95 percent confidence interval (CI),

New Phase 3 Study Results Show IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib)-Based Combination Regimen as an All-Oral Fixed-Duration Treatment Demonstrated Superior Progression-Free Survival in Adult Patients with Previously Untreated Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia12.6.2021 10:00:00 EEST | Press release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced primary results from the pivotal Phase 3 GLOW study (NCT03462719) evaluating fixed-duration IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) plus venetoclax (I+V) compared to chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (Clb+O) for first-line treatment of elderly or unfit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The study demonstrated superior progression-free survival (PFS) of a once-daily, all-oral, fixed-duration regimen of I+V versus Clb+O as first-line treatment of CLL; the study also showed improved duration of remission and significantly improved depth of remission.1 With I+V, undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD) in peripheral blood (PB) was sustained by 85 percent of patients one year after end of treatment.1 The safety and tolerability profile of I+V was consistent with CLL treatment in an older population with comorbidities.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing an

The Secure Communities Forum, a global collaboration of security professionals, has convened a leading panel of experts to discuss how behavioural science can impact positive social cohesion, build on the concept of positive citizenship, and encourage positive individual behaviours. The virtual event was attended by 134 people from 18 countries. The Secure Communities Forum convened the webinar in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Governments and law enforcement agencies have used behavioural science to encourage adherence to public health measures like social distancing and mask-wearing.
