Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL) today released its 2021 Sustainability Report, highlighting the Company's environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and 2022 sustainability targets. The theme of this year's report is "Building Strong Communities Through Responsible Mining."

"Throughout our more than 130 years in operation, Hecla's focus has been on responsible mining practices, safety, and building strong communities where our mines operate," said Hecla President and Chief Executive Officer Phillips S. Baker, Jr. "We reduced our GHG scope 1 and 2 emissions by 44% over 2019 baseline levels and achieved net zero on scope 1 & 2 emissions in 2021. Our commitment to transparent reporting and sustainability will continue as the United States' largest miner of silver, a metal that is a key part in decarbonizing our energy sources."
