Adhering to the idea of sustainable development, we established an ESG management policies system with the Corporate Code of Conduct as the guidance. Taking ESG goals and performance as the core, making reference to the best international ESG management practices and disclosure requirements, we established the ESG goals and indicators system, incorporating the Company's management models for material issues. Through training and assessment , we effectively align our corporate practices with the ESG ecosystem.
The Board members come from the fields of mining development, industry research, finance, and sustainable development. They have the necessary knowledge, skills and competence to discharge their duties.
The Company has a complete ESG governance structure. There are four committees at the Board level. The ESG Management Committee set up at the operational level is led by the President of the Company. The Corporate Social Responsibility Department at the headquarters and the ESG officers of the subsidiaries form an ESG coordination and management network, and different departments from the headquarters and subsidiaries form their own ESG management network. Relying on the ESG working group networks, we efficiently break down the ESG strategic goals and policy requirements and deliver to the lower levels to take action, forming a dynamic and effective risk management and communication mechanism to promote good ESG practices.

Based on the materiality analysis process of the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) and Zijin Mining’s business characteristics, the materiality analysis process of Zijin Mining was formed. At the end of the reporting period, with the assistance of external ESG experts, we carried out a detailed survey. Based on the senior management’s judgments on the materiality assessment results, we screened out 12 important topics in relation to corporate development. We carried out business impact assessments of material issues and set up business strategies and long-term objectives.
