Sustainability is a vital element of our strategy. We are committed to making informed choices that improve our corporate governance, financial strength, operational efficiency, environmental stewardship, community engagement and resource management. Through these efforts, we intend to sustain our business and experience lasting success. Our four material topics are represented in the values of the business and are the aspects that matter the greatest to Danakali, CMSC and our stakeholders.

Colluli is expected to provide an outstanding economic, social and community dividend. Positive impacts through infrastructure projects, tax revenue, royalties, the economic development associated with the hundreds of jobs created for Eritrean nationals, and the long-term training and development of tradesmen and professionals. To do so, we are improving our environmental, social and governance (ESG) system and will continue to.

In that regard, we undertook a social and environmental impact assessment (SEIA) and developed social and environmental management and monitoring plans (SEMPs) to prevent and minimise adverse impacts. Those include:

  • Community development
  • Community health and safety
  • Community employment
  • Cultural heritage and resources
  • Human resources & community employment
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Emergency preparedness and response
  • Traffic and transport
  • Noise
  • Air quality
  • Hazardous waste
  • Marine environment
  • Surface water
  • Ground water
  • Biodiversity
  • Land, vegetation and weed
  • Mine and process waste
  • Waste water
  • Hazardous materials
  • Wildlife, habitat, livestock and land use

Under the AFC Subscription Agreement, the SEIA and the SEMPs are currently being updated to assure full compliance with the Equator Principals (EPs), International Finance Corporation Performance Standards (IFC PSs), IFC Guidance, IFC Environmental, Social, Health and Safety Guidelines, Sector Specific Guidelines and National laws and regulations (collectively, the Lender Standards).

We will ensure all contractors and subcontractors involved with Colluli develop and implement an Environmental Social and Safety Management System and Environmental, Social and Safety Management Plans which are consistent with the CMSC and Danakali policies as well as management’s plans.

In addition, CMSC has developed a Framework for Sustainable Development, and included within this are a number of policies to guide the management of the Project during construction, operations and closure phases. For more details on our Framework for Sustainable Development click here
