Jubilee is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen

Sustainability is core to our business as a metal recovery company. By processing remnant mining residues and waste material, we are not only addressing the physical legacies of historical mining operations by rehabilitating the environment and clearing away pollution, but we are also doing so in a manner that improves the quality of life of those living in proximity of these installations. Jubilee is committed to operating in a manner that is transparent, environmentally responsible, ensures the longevity of our operations, and supports the socio-economic uplift of our host communities.

Jubilee’s commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen is guided by our ESG policies. Over time, we have incorporated best practices where possible for both operational and environmental elements of production and business activities.

As a company involved in a primary sector, Jubilee recognises that we have an opportunity and role to play in positively contributing to broader sustainability. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a useful framework by which to assess and monitor our efforts towards sustainable development, as well as our ESG performance.

The SDGs, which came into effect in January 2016, are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals and targets designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. They were developed to support the United Nations 2030 Agenda which ultimately aims to:

  • end poverty and inequality
  • protect the planet
  • ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity

We have interrogated the SDGs to identify those most aligned with our core business and with our responsibilities as a responsible corporate citizen. These include:

The processing and clearing of mine waste material have the advantage of reducing mining’s carbon footprint. As this is Jubilee’s principle activity, we are at the forefront of global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change.

Jubilee is committed to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and helping to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. We provide bursary opportunities to a small number of community residents, assist groups of students from local communities with portable skills training, and sponsor children with much needed stationery supplies

As we recognise access to water is a basic human right, we have invested in water supply projects in our host communities to ensure access to clean water and sanitation.  

The safety and well-being of Jubilee’s employees and contractors is our highest priority, and, to this end, we have maintained a strong track record of good employee health and safety. 

In all areas of our business, we endeavour to practice responsible consumption and production by improving waste minimisation measures, energy efficiencies and air, land and management systems. Our zero effluent policy is a prime example of our commitment to responsible consumption.

Jubilee believes in promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth through the provision of productive and decent employment opportunities. We are committed to employing local labour in the areas of our operations.

Jubilee recognises the value in partnering with other organisations, particularly government institutions, in furthering the goals of sustainable development. One of our key partnerships is with the Zambia Mining and Environmental Remediation and Improvement Project, a government initiative to reduce environmental health risks to the local population in critically polluted mining areas in Zambia, including the Kabwe municipality
