The UN Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative, with over 11,000 business and non-business participants across 157 countries. The initiative is a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. Kinross became a participant in 2010.
Kinross supports the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights and has implemented a Human Rights Adherence and Verification Program. The program helps ensure that all security personnel, as well as key site management, understand and are consistently compliant with the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.

Training is conducted on an annual basis, and all of Kinross' security workers are trained under the program.
