Environmental Monitoring Team

Representatives from Vale, citizens from the community, and an official from the Ministry of the Environment meet regularly as part of an Environmental M​onitoring Team.

Established as part of the Ministry of the Environment’s Site-Specific Air Standard Approval for Nickel and Environmental Compliance Approval for Vale’s Copper Cliff Smelter, the team meets twice a year to review progress and activities.

See our most recent action plan progress reports and updates, below, as well as quarterly results from 24-hour average ambient concentration measurements of total suspended particulate, nickel, cobalt, other metals and sulfur dioxide. Download this glossary of technical terms here​.
