COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho— Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL) has released its 2023 Sustainability Report, highlighting the Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.

“Hecla demonstrated resilience in 2023 as we faced operational disruptions due to wildfires in Quebec and multiple weather events in Alaska, while also developing the Keno Hill mine and executing mitigation plans at Lucky Friday,” said Phillips S. Baker Jr., President and CEO. “Despite these challenges, our focus remained on the commitment to the safety of our workforce, our environment stewardship, and the well-being of communities in which we operate, while continuing to grow our silver production to support the increasing demand for silver needed for transitioning to renewable energy like solar.”

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2023 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

  • $855 million direct economic impact to local communities
  • Over 40 thousand hours of safety & health training hours
  • All-Injury Frequency Rate 16% lower than the U.S. average
  • 5% increase in women in professional roles
  • 36% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions from our 2019 baseline
  • Achieved net zero carbon emissions for the 3rd year in a row with the use of carbon offset credits.
