To safeguard the environment in which we operate, Baffinland employs a balance of scientific and traditional Inuit knowledge.
Committed to Preserving the Natural Environment
Through extensive consultation, environmental engineering, and environmental monitoring, potential impacts from our activities are either avoided or minimized. We conduct a number of programs related to archaeology, water treatment, wildlife, and the marine environment. These programs are designed to monitor and ensure protection of the environment. We educate and empower our employees at both our mine and port sites to be respectful towards the environment and implement environmental best practices.
We’ve conducted extensive archaeological surveys and research as part of the Mary River Project. All work is approved and reviewed by the Inuit Heritage Trust and Government of Nunavut and numerous discoveries have proved to be valuable additions to the historic knowledge base of the North Baffin Region.
