The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Our Focus

We at PAM understand that we are not an island – we are situated in and around the communities in which we operate. Our focus is on delivering inclusive outcomes that consider these communities. We believe in reciprocity – as the community thrives, so do we, and vice versa. We envision a future where mining and exploration coexist harmoniously with community development, cultural preservation, and sustainable growth. 

We are more than just a company; we are partners with our communities, working hand in hand for a brighter, more sustainable future.

Our Sustainability Strategy looks both inward and outward, striving to achieve a balance between financial success and humanitarian considerations. Ahead of our direct peers, we aim to embed this sustainability mindset early and allow it to mature alongside our projects. We wholeheartedly support the UN’s SDGs, with a primary focus on three specific goals:

GOAL 4: Quality Education

Supporting educational initiatives within our communities with #TheVillageScientist

This project has primarily focused on enhancing small primary schools in the areas in which we operate, by collaborating with community development initiatives, educational institutions, and religious establishments. Our efforts will include providing educational resources, music and sports facilities, classroom improvements, sanitation facilities, playground enhancements, and clean water systems. These initiatives aim to improve students’ physical and mental well-being, fostering a positive attitude towards education. The project also seeks to promote satisfaction among educational personnel and parents by actively supporting the school’s development and students’ progress.


Promoting gender balance in our operations and workplaces with Project #CommunityCares

This initiative comprises two distinct projects: Project Oxygen Bank and Project X-ray, collectively falling under the umbrella of Project #CommunityCares. Project #CommunityCares encompasses a comprehensive range of health promotion activities aimed at all demographics within the community. Its primary objectives are to promote good hygiene practices and advocate for the use of healthcare tools designed to monitor the health of individuals living within our designated areas.

One pivotal component of this initiative is the facilitation of annual lung X-ray examinations, which play a crucial role in assessing the risk of respiratory diseases among community members. By raising awareness about the importance of health and ensuring timely access to medical care, our overarching goal is to safeguard the well-being and health of all community members.

GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption & Production

Practicing sustainable resource management with #PAMGreen and #UnityinDiversity

This initiative plays a crucial role in raising awareness within local communities about environmental conditions, including dust, noise, surface water, and groundwater. Through continuous monitoring, we can promptly address any environmental abnormalities that may pose health risks to community members. We aim to identify the causes and implement timely solutions through in-depth analysis.

In addition, Project #UnityInDiversity actively contributes to the preservation and promotion of cultural traditions at local Thai Buddhist temples and Muslim mosques during significant religious festivals. By doing so, the project aims to foster collaboration, strengthen interfaith cooperation, and sustain the unique customs and beliefs of each participating community.
