Sherritt International Corporation ("Sherritt") (TSX: S) today announced the release of its 2018 Sustainability Report that outlines the company’s approach to sustainability and its performance for the year. The report, which was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s Standards, is available online at

“Sherritt’s purpose is to be a low-cost nickel producer that creates sustainable prosperity for all stakeholders,” said David Pathe, President and CEO of Sherritt International. “To fulfil that purpose, sustainability must underpin every major decision we make. We need innovation to address some of the biggest issues in our industry. More than ever, we need to foster a diverse and inclusive culture where people feel valued and feel comfortable speaking up, knowing that their ideas and opinions matter.”

The report contains Sherritt’s 2018 performance in support of its goal of being recognized as a responsible supplier as measured against the four pillars of its Sustainability Framework: Providing a Safe and Rewarding Workplace; Operating Ethically; Demonstrating Environmental Responsibility; and Engaging Stakeholders and Benefitting Communities.
