Paladin has committed itself to the principles of sustainable development in the conduct of its activities in Africa and around the world. In doing so, it is important that Paladin shares a common understanding with its stakeholders as to what this commitment means and how it governs the Company’s actions and behaviour. The common definition of the term sustainable development is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
It is also urged, in sustainable development documentation, that a balance be found between economic, social and environmental needs. The work that Paladin does in relation to its own employees and its host countries and neighbouring communities reflects its efforts to strive for that balance and, in so doing, operates consistently with the corporate values that Paladin promotes. Paladin continues to strive to benefit both present and future generations in all of its activities.
