Sustainability Reports

Sustainable development as key part of Lydian's strategy

Lydian prioritises sustainable development as a key part of its corporate strategy, and continues to devote time and resources to fulfilling the sustainability commitments assumed by the Company.

The major sustainability focus areas include occupational and community health and safety, mitigation of environmental impacts, community engagement and development, local hiring and broader economic impacts, and transparency and good governance.  

Sustainability reports are intended to be shared with all of the stakeholders, and therefore are available both in English and in Armenian. Reports are prepared with reference to the Global reporting Initiative (GRI).

Lydian Armenia is committed to open and transparent engagement and welcomes feedback on how to improve the reporting or sustainability performance. Please contact the Company at [email protected]
