Environmental Stewardship

We are dedicated to minimizing environmental impacts associated with our operations. We will comply with all Ghanaian legislation and regulations, as well as appropriate international standards.

Responsibility for environmental stewardship rests at the highest level of Asanko. Our Environmental Management Plans are designed to ensure continuous improvement in the management of environmental resources, as well as create environmental awareness within Asanko employees and contractors through training. Monitoring programs are reviewed on a regular basis and adjusted according to changing needs and best practice.

We draw on the following standards for our environmental management and monitoring:

  • IFC Performance Standards
  • World Bank Environment, Health, and Safety General and Mining Guidelines
  • World Health Organization Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality
  • International Cyanide Management Code
