Environmental Activities 


Our Environmental Principles
Eldorado’s Environmental Policy shows our commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner throughout all stages of the mining lifecycle – from project inception to mine closure.
Tüprag’s commitment to operating with environmental integrity is built on the following principles:
·         To complete research before construction begins to determine any potential impacts on the environment, human beings and other living organisms, air, water and soil at all stages of the project. Once we have identified the potential impacts of our planned activities, we minimize risks in compliance with national and international standards.  
·         To implement systems and processes that protect the environment, and to ensure that all employees and suppliers fully comply with them.  
·         To monitor, control and measure environmental and health parameters, and share the results with relevant authorities, institutions and local communities to ensure that a healthy and sustainable environment is maintained.  
Tüprag has implemented Environmental Management Policies and Plans at its Kışladağ and Efemçukuru gold mines. Implementation of these plans and policies began before we even began producing gold at the mines and will continue after the mines are closed.  
Environmental Management Systems are developed to systematically mitigate or fully eliminate any potential damage caused by mining operations on the environment. ISO 14001 represents a series of standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which define and prescribe a system to minimize environmental damage by identifying environmental risks and taking appropriate measures and precautions during mining production to minimize these risks.
