Message from our CEO
As CEO of UEX Corporation, I am pleased to be able to present the Company’s first ever Safety, Environmental, Social Sustainability and Diversity Report.
I have been proud of our Company’s historical performance with respect to diversity, safety, social sustainability and environmental issues, and this report highlights specific areas in which we knew or believed intuitively that UEX performs well. While we believe that companies operating in Northern Saskatchewan, particularly the uranium producers are global leaders with respect to ESG, this report provides us with insights into areas where UEX can improve our performance in key areas.
In the past year, the investor spotlight has shifted towards the ESG performance for all resource companies, even pre-production companies such as UEX. Our Company has always believed that excellent safety, environmental and social sustainability is not just the right thing to do, but is the moral cornerstone needed to build a solid business maximizing benefits not just to society but for our stakeholder communities in northern Saskatchewan.
As we look proud to reporting our exploration successes over the past year, I am also excited to discuss our progress on our SESS and Diversity goals and accomplishments with stakeholders in the coming years.
President and CEO
UEX Corporation health and safety measures during COVID-19:
UEX Corporation is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, consultants and contractors. During the COVID-19 pandemic the company has paid close attention to the Government of Saskatchewan’s updates and has followed all public health orders required by the Government and exceeded the processes and safeguards recommended by the Saskatchewan Mining Association. UEX has taken steps to control the COVID-19 risks in our corporate office and our remote operations. UEX employees have transitioned to working from home to eliminate unnecessary risk of transmission. Employees that remain working from our corporate office follow strict measures to ensure everyone’s safety including physical distancing and barriers, frequent cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, and personal protective equipment. At our remote operations we have implemented COVID-19 health and safety screening program that will remain in effect during the entirety of our field operations in 2021.
During this time of difficulty, we have also contributed to the COVID Relief 155 to help coordinate Saskatchewan’s Northwestern region’s response to COVID-19.
