We intend to make our contribution to the world for a long time to come.
We need to make plans for the future, to understand what changes and issues will affect the coming generations, and adjust our operations so we’re ready.
The world is changing quickly, in terms of its people, technology, climate and societies, and to stay ahead of the curve, we invest heavily in our future. It’s a fascinating and demanding process, but one we’re happy to commit to, because success in this area can only enhance our sustainability.
Creating economic, social and environmental projects that will deliver benefits to future generations as well as the people and communities we work with right now, is the core of our ‘Intelligent Land Management’ initiative.
Our ILM projects cover a broad range of issues, from waste management to land rehabilitation, to protecting and enhancing biodiversity.
The key to creating sustainability is continually planning ahead, and mine closure planning is one of our highest priorities at every one of our operations.
When we consider what will happen to an area once we close down one of our operations, our planning is guided by our commitment to leave the land fit for purpose, and the need to work within regulatory requirements. Our aim is to ensure that the land we are vacating has value to future generations.
As a company operating across three continents, we see the potential difference climate change can make to a wide range of environments and communities. We support the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including the SDG for Climate Change.
We’re a modern, international business and it’s essential that we do everything we can to become ever more diverse and inclusive, so that our workforce represents the gender, ethnic and other demographic elements of the communities we work in more accurately. It’s a task we undertake proudly, and we’re making progress.
The world is changing rapidly, and the way forward is to embrace innovation in technology, techniques, hardware, software, systems and management approaches. Whether it’s improving the wellbeing of our employees, planning to counteract climate change or finding smarter ways to deal with waste, we welcome innovative thinking and actions.
In an exciting step forward for us and the industry, we’ve embarked on a three-year partnership with GE to assist in our digital transformation.Sustainability
