Sustainability Report

The Orocobre 2020 financial year (FY20) Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards (core) and documents the Company’s progress against the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact and contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

This year, we have expanded the scope of our sustainability reporting to include key performance data from Borax Argentina as well as our Olaroz Lithium Facility. The data and contents provided in this document, for both companies, cover the period between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020. The scope does not currently include the Naraha Lithium Hydroxide Project which is managed by our joint venture partner Toyota Tsusho Corporation.

The specific topics addressed in this report were defined from a materiality assessment process which analysed public announcements, internal documentation and insights shared with the Company by stakeholder groups.

Further supporting information regarding performance in FY20 is available as follows:

  • Performance Data: additional detailed sustainability indicators related to the performance of each of our focus areas
  • Case Studies: additional information relating to our community initiatives and programs where we create Shared Value
  • Management Approach Disclosures: outline of the strategic importance, scope, management approach and annual update of our different business areas and topics of relevance to our stakeholders
  • GRI Standards / UNGC Contents Index: outline of material topics and contents defined by the GRI Standard and the Principles of the UN Global Compact, which enables the reader to navigate the report and promptly locate such information in the Sustainability Report or other complementary documents
