Our Approach to Sustainability

Sandstorm is committed to furthering the responsible development of mineral projects and the sustainable extraction of metals through its financial investments. While we have no control over a project or the various environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks associated with a mine, we recognize that a good investment is a mine that will function safely, successfully, and with multi-generational support of local communities and governments. That’s why our team conducts a thorough investigation and evaluation of ESG risk factors related to a mineral property and operating partner prior to any material financial investment.


Sandstorm Gold Royalties is continuously graded on our ESG efforts by some of the world’s most reputable agencies. In addition, Sandstorm has voluntarily committed to certain regulatory bodies and member groups that work to promote sustainability best practices on a global scale.
