Hecla’s Environmental Performance

At each of our sites, we endeavor to reduce freshwater and energy consumption, reduce our carbon footprint, maintain local water quality backed by rigorous testing and monitoring, utilize methods and technologies that help protect all aspects of the environment, and restore the land once mining is complete.

We also set reduction targets for freshwater and energy use, and we implement and continually improve efficiencies into facilities, projects, and operations. Learn more about our environmental targets and performance in our 2021 Sustainability Report.
