Around the world, we’re helping people improve their lives through the development of natural resources.

We produce bauxite, alumina, aluminium, energy coal, metallurgical coal, manganese, nickel, silver, lead and zinc in Australia, Southern Africa and South America. We also own a highgrade zinc, lead and silver development option in North America and have partnered with several junior explorers with a bias to base metals.

Whether it’s for use in infrastructure, energy generation, consumables or vehicles, we believe the extraction and processing of minerals and metals can be done in a responsible way.

That’s why we continually challenge ourselves to be the best in what matters – the safety and wellbeing of our people and communities, our operational performance, and minimising our environmental impact.

Our purpose is to make a difference

Our purpose is to make a difference by developing natural resources, improving people’s lives now and for generations to come. We’re trusted by our owners and partners to realise the potential of their resources.

We do this by creating local jobs, empowering and investing in communities, and contributing to governments through paying taxes and royalties – while achieving sector-leading returns for our shareholders.

Our strategy and breakthroughs

Our purpose is underpinned by our strategy, which is focused on:

  • Optimising the performance of our existing operations;
  • Unlocking their potential by converting high-value resource into reserve; and
  • Identifying new opportunities to compete for capital.

To deliver on our purpose and strategy, we’re guided by our ‘Breakthroughs’, which outline how we’ll make a difference through our safety performance, stakeholder engagement, operationsfunctions, technology, environmental and social leadership, and portfolio optimisation. Across the organisation, our Breakthroughs form the basis of our Business Plans to ensure we’re all aligned.

While our strategy and Breakthroughs focus on the ‘what’, our values focus on ‘how’ we achieve our purpose. We hold ourselves and each other to account to act and make decisions aligned with our values of care, trust, togetherness and excellence.
