Integrated corporate responsibility (ICR) Desert Enterprises, our Integrated Corporate Responsibility Policy (ICR) begins with the belief that a safe Quarry is a productive unit – each day, each shift, home safely.

We will strive to guard the health and safety of our employees and the community.

Second, we will be responsible environmental stewards and strive to minimize environmental effects during exploration, development and operations and then reclaim our projects to productive post mining land uses.

Third, we believe that by becoming responsive to community needs, the Company builds trust and relationships that foster our social license to operate. This encompasses taking a mutually-beneficial approach to issues affecting the community, treating others with respect, and engaging in open and honest communication. Each of these aspects will be fully integrated into our business planning as they are considered key to our core business strategy and continued profitability.

This is our integrated corporate responsibility bottom line – health and safety, environmental stewardship, social license, and economic profitability.

Desert Enterprises is committed to openness, transparency, and honesty in its dealings with shareholders, employees and partners. This is done through keeping them aware of its objectives, goals, and businesses.
