VANCOUVER, Nov. 16, 2022 - Novo Resources Corp. ("Novo" or the "Company") (TSX: NVO, NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that it has published its inaugural sustainability statement (the "Statement") for the 12-month period ended June 30, 2022.
The Statement is available on the Company's website.
"The Company undertook its first sustainability materiality assessment in early 2022 in order to generate a roadmap to drive improvement and further build its governance framework to align with ambitions," commented Mr. Mike Spreadborough, Novo's Executive Co-Chairman and a director. "Recognising the growing demand for transparency in sustainability performance, we have identified a number of actions moving forward to ensure we deliver on our commitment to continue being open and honest. We see transparency as essential to good governance and responsible operation, moreover being in the best interest of our stakeholders. In the year to come we will focus on identifying opportunities to further reduce risk and improve our business practices, make meaningful contributions to the communities in which we operate, and investigate decarbonisation and emission reduction pathways."
In early 2022, Novo engaged global sustainability consultancy, Environmental Resource Management (ERM), to assess the Company's existing environmental, social and governance processes and controls to help identify gaps and progress efforts to achieving alignment with internationally recognised frameworks on best practice in sustainable operations.
Novo invites all of its stakeholders to read the Statement and watch the accompanying introductory video from the Novo team (available here), in which the Company outlines its approach to sustainability and its foundation built on key pillars that integrate all aspects of Novo's operations.
Novo explores and develops its prospective land package covering approximately 10,500 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, including Beatons Creek, along with two joint ventures in the Bendigo region of Victoria, Australia. In addition to the Company's primary focus, Novo seeks to leverage its internal geological expertise to deliver value-accretive opportunities to its shareholders.
