Transformation is central to our efforts to make a meaningful contribution to the social and economic development of South Africa. We are committed to the National Transformation Agenda that encompasses the Broad–Based Black Economic Empowerment Act and the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act Mining Charter, and we have accelerated our implementation of key transformation elements.

Mining companies operating in South Africa are required to submit Social and Labour Plans to the Department of Minerals and Resources prior to the granting of a mining right.

Through our plans we commit to empowerment and sustainable growth in South Africa is enhanced by:

  • Facilitating economic empowerment with broad-based equity ownership structures
  • Creating employment and upskilling opportunities for historically disadvataged people to encourage more of them into the workforce
  • Developing small and medium black enterprises, and creating growth opportunities for existing black enterprises
  • Increasing our local engagement through focussed and sustainable community development
  • Improving the housing and living conditions of our people and ensuring our plans are aligned with our values and the requirements of the South African Mining Charter
  • Recruiting from within our local communities

We continue to find ways that contribute to delivering our objectives, ensuring that our employees and communities are part of the process by holding workshops at every operation across all business areas.
