Financial Results of the Capital Group KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.
The extraction of copper ore and its processing by the metallurgical plants is inextricably linked to environmental impact in all its dimensions - both renewable and non-renewable. KGHM does not avoid its responsibility towards the environment, and systematically modernizes its installations designed to protect the environment.
Efficiency improvement, the purpose of which is to reverse the trend of a rising unit cost of production, is the key area of KGHM’s business strategy. Since 2012 the Company has recorded an average annual cost decrease of approximately two per cent, while the desire to reduce production costs is still a huge challenge for KGHM.
