Vancouver, British Columbia – June 29, 2023: Lancaster Resources Inc. (CSE:LCR) (OTC Pink:LANRF) (FRA:6UF) (“Lancaster” or the “Company) is pleased to announce it has engaged Socialsuite, an ESG Impact SaaS Platform, to support Lancaster’s ability to measure and report the sustainability of its current and planned operations, including its planned Climate Positive Lithium Extraction facility alongside the Alkali Flat Lithium Project in New Mexico, USA.
“Lancaster is excited to engage with Socialsuite, leveraging their expertise to accurately track and report our progress in ESG initiatives,” said Penny White, CEO of Lancaster. “This collaboration will not only strengthen our position for future negotiations regarding off-take agreements resulting from successful exploration activities but also amplify our appeal to existing and prospective stakeholders.”
At the Alkali Flat Project, Lancaster is actively exploring a subsurface lithium brine target. The company is assessing various Direct Lithium Extraction technologies to extract lithium from brine and is simultaneously developing a solar project to power the facility with renewable energy. By employing these advanced technologies, Lancaster aims to reduce its carbon footprint to net zero or near zero, while continuously exploring additional processes to further minimize environmental impact.
As part of the engagement with Socialsuite, Lancaster will receive a comprehensive ESG baseline disclosure report on 21 core ESG metrics, which will be made available to shareholders and stakeholders through a dedicated micro website showcasing Lancaster’s ESG initiatives. Socialsuite will also conduct an ESG gap analysis to identify areas for future improvement.
Seth Forman, President of ESG at Socialsuite, emphasized the significance of a baseline ESG report for public companies. He stated, “It is important for companies to report material ESG issues to meet the expectations of capital markets and investors. Additionally ESG reporting is becoming increasingly important through the off-take agreement process with large multinational companies expecting their suppliers to track and measure their ESG metrics. We are delighted to welcome Lancaster Resources to our platform, enhancing their ability to report their sustainability initiatives effectively.”
