Aurania Completes its First Environment, Social and Governance Report
Toronto, Ontario, September 7, 2021 – Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU) (OTCQB: AUIAF) (Frankfurt: 20Q) (“Aurania” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its first, annual Environment, Social and Governance (“ESG”) report, through the assistance of Onyen Corporation’s innovative ESG software solution for resource companies. The report is presented as an ESG scorecard and can be accessed via a link on the Company’s website.
This report dovetails with the Company’s ISO14001 certification for its environmental work achieved in 2020 and renewed in 2021. Both the ISO registration and the ESG report provide yardsticks against which Aurania can measure its efforts to minimize its already small environmental footprint, find ways of makings its social outreach more effective, while maintaining its strict governance standards through its Board of Directors and entire management team. A short video that captures some of the challenges and aspirations of our local stakeholders, the Shuar indigenous people, is available on Aurania’s website and can be viewed here.
Aurania’s Chairman and CEO, Dr Keith Barron commented, “President Guillermo Lasso has provided unequivocal guidance as to how he would like to see the resource industry develop in Ecuador; to drive economic growth through leadership that provides exemplary social engagement and environmental stewardship. Our entire team has heard the President’s message and is rising to that challenge. Our maiden ESG report, coupled with our ISO14001 registration, provide evidence of our commitment, but more importantly, help us to measure our progress and challenge us to do better.”
