VANCOUVER, British Columbia--BUSINESS WIRE--

Pan American Silver Corp. (NYSE: PAAS) (TSX: PAAS) ("Pan American" or the "Company") today released its 2023 Sustainability Report (the "Report") describing Pan American's approach and performance in the areas of environment, social and governance ("ESG"). A Spanish and Portuguese version of the Report will be released shortly.

Highlights of Pan American's 2023 ESG performance include:

  • Achieved strong safety performance with zero fatalities, as well as recording the second lowest lost time injury frequency rate (0.69) and the lowest lost time injury severity rate (40) in the Company’s history.
  • Invested $14.7 million in local communities. In addition, Pan American spent over $2 billion on wages, supplies, services, and taxes, benefiting the national, regional, and local economies where our operations are located.
  • Rehabilitated 89 hectares of land across our operations.
  • Received approval of the social closure plan for Manantial Espejo by the government of Santa Cruz in Argentina.
  • Trained 100% of security employees and contractors in human rights.
  • Hired 24% of women for all approved and budgeted vacant positions.

The Report also includes our 2024 goals for ESG performance and has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative ("GRI") Standards, including the GRI Mining & Metals Sector Disclosures, and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) Metals & Mining Sustainability Accounting Standard. The Report also takes into consideration the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures ("TCFD") reporting framework.

On March 31, 2023, Pan American Silver completed the acquisition of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Yamana Gold Inc. (“Yamana”) (the “Yamana Acquisition”), expanding our portfolio to include four new producing mines: Jacobina in Brazil, El Peñon and Minera Florida in Chile, and Cerro Moro in Argentina (together the “Acquired Mines”). The Yamana Acquisition and integration of the Acquired Mines have provided an opportunity for Pan American to leverage the best sustainability practices and standards of both companies and to enhance the development of long-term ESG goals.

Other than financial data, which is as of the Yamana Acquisition date, the Report includes data for the Acquired Mines for the complete reporting period of January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023.

The Report marks the 14th annual Sustainability Report published by Pan American. For more information on Pan American's sustainability efforts and to access all reports, visit https://www.panamericansilver.com/sustainability/
