Aya embarked on its sustainability reporting journey in 2020, a landmark year for the Corporation due to the appointment of Benoit La Salle as new Chief Executive Officer and the new management team. In the first year, we carried out a detailed materiality assessment to identify the key environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that were most likely to be considered material by our stakeholders. Our findings are presented in our inaugural 2020 Sustainability Report that establishes the ESG baseline for the Zgounder Silver Mine project expansion using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards: Core option.
In 2021, Aya began reporting on Onyen, the sustainability reporting software platform. Onyen helps companies better capture, monitor, benchmark, manage and report their ESG risks and opportunities with real-time reporting displayed on the Executive Dashboard and ESG Scorecards. With all relevant standards and frameworks built in, the platform generates auditable ESG reports for directors, CEOs, sustainability professionals, capital providers, rating agencies and regulators. The new reporting software enabled Aya to widen the scope of its reporting from material issues only to include broader ESG reporting that meets the increasing demands of stakeholders and the many reporting frameworks.
As a result, Aya’s sustainability reports are now compliant and aligned with the below reporting guidelines:
Aya 2022 ESG Report
2022 Sustainability Report (complement to 2022 ESG Report)
Rapport développement durable 2022 (French version of 2022 Sustainability Report)
Aya 2021 ESG Report
2020 Sustainability Report
