The Dundee Brand and team, over a 3-decade history, have maintained a highly respected industry track record of success. This success is attributed to the creation, advancement, development and active management of mining companies worldwide. It is our belief that ESG incorporation has been an essential driver of our success, and as such, is woven deeply into our investment process.
Our management team considers ESG incorporation a "must have", and these standards are upheld in all areas of the business and at all levels. Our unique de-risking process explicitly includes local community engagement, safety, environmental protection and the communication of all potential stakeholder concerns.
From the portfolio company perspective, an investment is only made if our team believes that all globally recognized ESG standards are met. Countries that we feel lack adequate rule of law and/or have safety concerns are not even considered.
Our process of working with management to develop an independent board further enables governance best practices. Our team has developed positive relationships with government officials and maintains that through research and education on responsible mining, our entire team is equipped with the knowledge and framework that supports everyone's cooperation and goal alignment.
