VP, Corporate Social Responsibility

Message from the VP Corporate Social Responsibility

I am pleased to report that 2016 was a year in which Nevsun achieved many of its CSR and Sustainability objectives.  For Nevsun, CSR and Sustainability are an opportunity to make a difference; that is, by supporting Eritrea’s nation-building aspirations and through their economic and social development community programs. That is why we aim to ensure that CSR is integrated as a core part of our internal and external business systems.
