GRI Indexes:

We also consider the fact that our operations are located in areas of high biodiversity value, such as protected areas and natural monuments. In the area of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.’s operations, the most important of these include the Oak Alley natural monument in Nowy Dwór (the Polkowice mining area), the Uroczysko Orbiszów and Buczyna Jakubowska protected areas (the Sieroszowice deposit area), three protected landscape areas: Guzicki Potok, Trzebcz and Grodowiec, as well as 45 natural monuments located in the Lubin-Małomice mining area.

As far as KGHM INTERNATIONAL LTD. is concerned, none of the mines are located in a protected area or area of high biodiversity value.
