Due Diligence Process for New Investments

Osisko is committed to promoting sustainable development through our investments. As a provider of capital, we understand that it is critical to identify, assess, and mitigate any potential risks during the initial due diligence process prior to making an investment. We conduct extensive due diligence to inform our investment decisions, reviewing and assessing performance on a range of factors, including ESG. The Board, and specifically the Environmental and Sustainability Committee, continuously monitors ESG issues, and any new or heightened risks are brought to the attention of the Board by the Senior Executive team.
