VANCOUVER, BC, May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Wheaton Precious Metals™ Corp.

  • "AA" rated by MSCI ESG Ratings and rated "Prime" by ISS ESG
  • Established $5 million Community Support and Response Fund for COVID-19 and worked with most of our mining partners to identify programs that address food security, health and socio-economic impacts in the communities near the mines
  • Distributed over $5.8 million in support of over 100 various charities and initiatives
  • Achieved carbon neutral status for the sixth consecutive year
  • Adopted a new goal of 30% women directors by 2024
