WHO WE ARE Independence Group NL (‘IGO’ or ‘the Company’) is a leading ASX-listed mining and exploration company. Our strategic focus is on high-quality assets of scale and longevity and an evolving strategy to align the business to the structural shift to energy storage. The Company’s focus is on its 100% owned, world-class Nova nickel- copper-cobalt operation, its 30% interest in the Tropicana Operation, a joint venture with AngloGold Ashanti Australia Ltd, and its portfolio of belt- scale exploration projects in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. OUR PURPOSE THE IGO PURPOSE: MAKING A DIFFERENCE In late 2017, IGO began the journey to reset our purpose. To this end IGO held a number of workshops involving the IGO Board, our senior management and a cross-section of the business. In total, around 10% of the people who work at IGO were actively involved in the purpose development workshops across nine areas of the business. The feedback from all the working groups had a high degree of commonality. In short, IGO people want to “make a difference” and to be part of a business that is more than a mining company – to be part of something that is making a positive contribution to the world. Our new purpose, as defined below, reflects these aspirations. We believe in a world where people power makes amazing things happen. Where technology opens up new horizons and clean energy makes the planet a better place for every generation to come. We are bold, passionate, fearless and fun – a smarter, kinder, more innovative company. Our work is making fundamental changes to the way communities all over the world grow, prosper and stay sustainable. Our teams are finding and producing the specialist metals that will make energy storage mobile, efficient and effective enough to make long-term improvements to the lifestyle of hundreds of millions of people across the globe. How? New battery storage technology is finally unleashing the full potential of renewable energy by allowing power produced from sun, wind and other sources to be stored and used when and where it’s needed. This technology will impact future generations in ways we cannot yet imagine, improving people’s quality of life and changing the way we live. We believe in a green energy future and by delivering the metals needed for new age batteries, we’re making it happen. This is the IGO Difference. 8 — IGO SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018
