Environment, Social & Governance
Frontier Lithium understands that every interaction and every decision we make has an impact on the environment, on communities and, in the future, on our customers. Our legacy, beyond profitability, will be determined by the positive impacts we have now and for future generations.
As a company we understand that the products we will produce, will contribute to the low carbon transition. While this is positive, we must develop our business in a sustainable manner that meets or exceeds environmental regulation, and we must seek practical solutions to minimize our environmental impacts while ensuring we are able to produce a consistent, high quality lithium product.
As a company, we recognize the importance of developing and maintaining strong relationships with employees, contractors, the public, and importantly, the Indigenous communities on whose traditional lands we work. We aim to ensure that their interests are understood and appropriately considered in all our decision-making.
Frontier Lithium takes pride in operating our business with the highest ethical standards, conducting our activities with honesty, integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. We ensure every employee follows our established business ethics and policies to ensure we act ethically and responsibly. Frontier Lithium continues to evolve our policies to reflect environmental, social and human rights considerations in our business decisions providing safe, healthy, and productive working environments for our employees.
As a publicly listed company on the Toronto Stock Exchanges, Frontier Lithium is subject to a variety of regulations. The board has adopted corporate governance guidelines to ensure that our practices comply with governance rules and legislation in Canada. Our policies apply to all directors, officers and employees of Frontier Lithium and it addresses, among other things, topics such as conflicts of interest, confidentiality, disclosure and compliance.
Frontier Lithium recognizes the importance of developing and maintaining strong relationships with Indigenous peoples advanced through shared values of honesty, respect and open communication. To support those relationships, the following principles will guide our work:
We recognize that Indigenous peoples were the original inhabitants of the land that became Canada.
We recognize the special relationship between Indigenous people and the land that has formed over millenia and we seek to learn and incorporate traditional knowledge into our decisions.
We are committed to sustainability and recognize the need to preserve the environment for use by future generations.
We respect that each community has its own distinctive culture, traditions, values and aspirations.
We actively seek to structure our projects in ways that provide social, cultural and economic benefits consistent with the aspirations of those communities with which we partner.
We engage in timely, respectful and meaningful consultation with the goal of achieving free, prior and informed consent on new projects.
Recognizing the next generation of leaders.
