Good community relations are as necessary for our business success as the effective management of our operations. This belief is at the heart of our overall approach to community work and is why we build good quality relationships with the people in the areas where we operate. We seek to understand the social, environmental and economic implications of our activities so we can optimize benefits and reduce negative impacts, both for local communities and for regional and national economies. We accept that we cannot meet everybody’s concerns and expectations, but wherever we operate we seek to do so with broad-based community support.
From stimulating the economy to protecting the area’s natural resources, we believe that creating a healthy community has multiple dimensions. We’ll support a healthy community through developing meaningful relationships with local organizations and driving transparent communication with area residents. With an open and honest approach, we look forward to feedback that will continuously improve the way that we operate.
From initial exploration to cultivation of the mine site, our focus on the community is a long term effort. Even upon the conclusion of Eagle, it’s our goal to look back and see the Upper Peninsula in a better social, economic and environmental state than when we started.
