“this level of reporting gives long- term investors valuable information to inform their investment decisions”. While we are pleased with this acknowledgement, we aim to continue to improve the quality and range of disclosures made in response to increasing stakeholder demands for transparency (see Figure 4). To enable this, IGO has committed to develop and report on an increased range of quantitative and qualitative targets related to our material sustainability. ANALYSIS OF SUSTAINABILITY FRAMEWORKS IGO is pleased to have supported research into sustainability frameworks in the resource sector in Western Australia as completed by Curtin University’s MSc Student, Sarah Williamson. This research will serve to inform IGO’s approach to sustainability reporting. Further, following its publication, it is our hope that Ms Williamson’s work will catalyse further debate and contribute to the subsequent evolution of these frameworks. THE FUTURE IGO’s ExCo is committed to continuous improvement and to making key business decisions in full consideration of their social, environmental and intergenerational consequences. It remains IGO’s aspiration that our ongoing effort will culminate in our organisation embracing full and open accountability for these aspects of our business activities while operating in accordance with our Code of Conduct. FY19 will see IGO commence a process of ongoing socio-economic impact assessment. In the coming years we expect this information will better inform the management of our business. We look forward to sharing the results. It is our explicit goal to be regarded as “leaders” in sustainability disclosure. 2008 30 0 60 90 120 150 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 130 31 39 120 40 40 126 30 44 121 34 45 98 30 72 96 30 74 84 26 90 93 9 96 83 16 101 76 20 104 No reporting Detailed/Leading Basic/Moderate TRENDS IN ASX200 REPORTING LEVELS FIGURE 4 Trends in ASX200 sustainability reporting as assessed by ACSI 2018 Number of businesses reporting IGO SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018— 19
