Intelligent Land Management (ILM) is a framework for land management designed to transform land holdings which are currently unused or subject to rehabilitation into areas that increase climate resilience and generate shared financial, social and environmental value.

Our ILM framework below represents a considerable maturity in the way we perceive and generate value for our stakeholders and is an acknowledgment of our industry’s accountability for socio-environmental stewardship and landscape level planning for the life of an operation and beyond.

Project selection for ILM initiatives is comprehensive and requires a broad outlook of both internal and external operating environments as well as considerable stakeholder engagement.

Our Strategic Land Assessments (SLAs) form the backbone of project development and include:

  • Analysis on land availability and compatibility
  • Opportunity mapping to support the business, the environment and society
  • Internal and external context analysis

SLAs will roll out across all of our operations over time. 

ILM follows the guiding principles as set out below.
