About this report

This report documents Kinross’ performance across our global operations in key areas of socio-economic, health and safety, and environmental responsibility over fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2013.

We have chosen to report on a biennial basis because our material issues and management approach are consistent from year to year. In the intervening years, we publish a CR Data Supplement to disclose key compliance, socio-economic, environmental, and safety performance metrics annually.

This year, for the first time, we have sought independent limited assurance of certain material key performance data covered in this report.

This report is based upon the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 guidelines, and performance data are reported on an equity basis.

This report is organized in five main sections and can be read online, downloaded as a PDF, or browsed using a mobile device. Readers familiar with GRI may want to use the GRI Index to access the report. This report also serves as our Communication on Progress for the UN Global Compact; the Communication on Progress (COP) index identifies report content pertinent to the UNGC principles.
