Newcrest is supporting its workforce and communities through the ongoing management and monitor of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Newcrest continues to monitor the risks of COVID-19 across all jurisdictions we operate in. To date, the company has not experienced any material COVID-19 related disruptions to production or the supply of good and services.
All of our operations have business continuity plans and contingencies in place, which seek to minimise disruptions in the event that a significant number of operational employees and/or contractors contract the virus. In addition, all of our operations monitor updates to and comply with relevant government requirements in the jurisdictions the company operates in.
Information and updates on COVID management, costs incurred or impacts to the business are provided in Newcrest’s market updates, which can be found in the Results and Reports centre. In the event that any material impacts were to arise as a result of the virus, Newcrest would inform the market in line with its continuous disclosure obligations.
To help support communities where we operate through the pandemic, Newcrest has also established a A$20 million Community Support Fund. To date, more than 65 initiatives have been supported through this program to provide health assistance, livelihood restoration and economic recovery in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Canada, Ecuador and Fiji.
