Publication of 2023 Sustainability Report

Kenmare Resources plc (LSE:KMR, ISE:KMR), one of the leading global producers of titanium minerals and zircon, which operates the Moma Titanium Minerals Mine (the “Mine” or “Moma”) in northern Mozambique, today announces the publication of its Sustainability Report for the year ended 31 December 2023. The report is available on the Company’s website and can be downloaded here.

Statement from Elaine Dorward-King, Chair of Kenmare’s Sustainability Committee:

“While 2023 was a unique and challenging year for Kenmare, as well as the wider mining industry and the world, I am proud that sustainability matters continue to be firmly rooted into the strategic thinking and planning of the Company. Some of the highlights of the year include 40% of the Moma Mine’s senior leadership roles now being held by women, which is a significant uplift from 25% in 2022, and a 14% decrease in our Scope 1 emissions year-on-year.”

Statement from Michael Carvill, Managing Director:

“It has been 20 years since the construction of the Moma Mine got underway and Kenmare remains focused on our commitment to being a truly responsible operator across economic, social, environmental and governance issues. While regulation is rightly driving companies to deliver positive impacts for all stakeholders, we believe that strong sustainability performance is part and parcel of strong operational and financial performance. We embrace the challenge and opportunity that comes with this increased focus and we are grateful for the continued support of all of our stakeholders in striving for this goal.”
