In addition, the Board believes that there are certain attributes that every director should possess, as reflected in our Proxy statement. The directors have a range of tenure, complementing experience with fresh views; half of our directors joined the Board in 2013 or later, including two new directors in 2018 and one in 2019.

The following table provides summary information about the skills and qualifications of our Board.


Ethics & Compliance

Coeur's Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides a roadmap to help guide employee actions, and all employees are responsible for conducting business and themselves in accordance with the Code. The Audit Committee of the board is responsible for overseeing and recommending Board approval of the standards of business conduct contained in the code, including significant updates.

"At Coeur, we pursue a higher standard in all areas of our business, and our Code demonstrates our commitment to seeking and delivering a higher standard of ethics and integrity in every aspect of our business, throughout the organization."
- Mitchell J. Krebs, President & CEO

As part of our strong culture of compliance, we conduct regular ethics and Code of Conduct training programs for all our employees, using several methods including annual in-person trainings at our corporate office and each site, several online trainings per year, and periodic compliance reminder communications on relevant topics such as:

Environmental Responsibility

Health and Safety

Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment

Legal Compliance

Related Party Transactions

Conflicts of Interest

Fair Dealings with Others

Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery
