Our local community and UNs Sustainability Goals
In order to achieve success with the extraction of Greenlandic gemstones, it is important for the organization to ensure a strong local foundation around the project.
The Aappaluttoq mine currently employs approximately 43 people, of which the labor force is primarily local Greenlandic labor.
With its activity in all 12 months of the year, the Aappaluttoq mine is heavily dependent on a number of local Greenlandic companies in connection with replacement of employees, supplies, and spare parts among others that make it possible to maintain operation all year round.
As a mining organization we must at least meet or aim to meet the following United Nations Sustainability Goals by 2025
