EN26 Initiatives to mitigate environmental impacts of products and services and extent of impact mitigation Kinross’ precious metal products are not known to have significant environmental impacts.
 
Mercury is a naturally occurring mineral in some of the ore we mine. Because all mercury compounds are toxic, Kinross takes considerable care to collect by-product mercury production and prevent its release into the environment. We have management systems in place at all of our operations, regulated under state and federal permits specific to each jurisdiction, to safely collect and transport mercury. We currently sell all the mercury we produce to a responsible mercury recycler. In 2009, Kinross produced 52.2 tonnes of mercury, all of which was sold to Bethlehem Apparatus Company in Pennsylvania. The majority of Kinross’ mercury production is from La Coipa in Chile. In response to growing concern about mercury in the environment (e.g. U.S. Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008), Kinross is developing a revised strategy for the disposal of by-product mercury from its operations.
EN27 Percentage of products sold and their packaging materials that are reclaimed by category Due to the precious nature of our products, very large percentages are known to be recycled. Packaging associated with these products is negligible.

EN29 Environmental impacts of transportation Environmental impacts of transportation are comprehensively assessed in environmental planning documents and are monitored over the life of each Kinross operation. Transportation corridors are selected based upon risk assessment and transport controls and mitigation implemented as needed. Emergency response plans include collaboration with local emergency response agencies. Potential impacts are mitigated in various ways, including risk assessment of transportation corridors and mitigation, contractual arrangements with shippers to control potential impacts, and emergency response plans and preparation.

HR1 Percentage and total number of significant investment agreements that include human rights clauses or that have undergone human rights screening As part of our due diligence in assessing any significant investment, we include an assessment of human rights considerations.
HR2 Percentage of significant suppliers and contractors that have undergone screening on human rights and actions taken Zero. Although Kinross does not currently screen suppliers based on human rights performance, the Company wants to do business with suppliers that share its approach to corporate responsibility. In light of this, a new Kinross Supplier Code is being developed to help suppliers understand Kinross’ expectations for standards of business conduct in their dealings with, or on behalf of the Company. Support and respect for the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights forms a key part of these expectations. The new Kinross Supplier Code is expected to be rolled out in 2010-2011 and the Company will ask suppliers to confirm their commitment on an annual basis, to review the Supplier Code and complete an online declaration that they have understood the Code and agree to fully comply with its provisions. In addition to this supplier self-review, Kinross will proactively screen a subset of critical suppliers and contractors to ensure compliance. We expect to report having screened suppliers to cover a majority of the Company’s purchases by our next corporate responsibility report.
