Klohn Crippen Berger is proud to release its 2016 Sustainability Report, where we report on the economic, social and environmental impacts of our business in 2016. This year’s theme is Strengthening Professional Practice. In our fifth report, we highlight how we are helping to improve the standard of care for dam safety and tailings engineering.
With KCB’s help, British Columbia is leading the way by recently revising its Health, Safety and Reclamation Code for Mines in B.C., laying out clear regulations for the safe management of tailings dams. Other jurisdictions and professional associations across the world are taking notice and adopting revised codes and guidelines for both mine owners and engineers. We also provided input to guidelines from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (APEGBC), the Canadian Dam Association (CDA) and the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) to improve the state of practice of tailings engineering.
“We started reporting on our sustainable practices in 2012 to formalize our principle of ‘Doing Things Right’. By doing things right for our stakeholders, we are helping our clients to responsibly manage the world’s resources,” said Len Murray, President and CEO. “This report communicates our performance to our stakeholders because they demand a high level of accountability for environmental stewardship and social responsibility.”
