At Diavik, our professional team operates our world class diamond mine in one of the most challenging environments in the world, the subarctic tundra of Canada's Northwest Territories.
Our most important value is safety and everyone at Diavik builds safety into every aspect of their work. Safety is a shared responsibility and we believe Zero Harm is achievable. As a business, we have committed the resources required to ensure a safe and healthy workplace and every member of our team is responsible for his or her own safety and the safety of their colleagues.
At Diavik, we are committed to ensuring we protect the environment in which we operate. Our operation is designed to have minimal impact on the land, water, and wildlife.
Equally important are our community partnerships which generate employment, and significant business benefits to local communities, many of which are Aboriginal. We also invest locally through our community contribution program and scholarships. Our objective is to operate sustainably and to be a responsible operator contributing positively to the North.
Learn more about how we deliver on our commitment to the North through our 2016 sustainable development report.
