We recognise our obligation to extract resources responsibly. Our Sustainability Strategy is an intrinsic part of everything we do.

We recognise that people and communities are affected by our business activities, and that we have a responsibility to ensure that those people and communities benefit through opportunities such as employment, business development, education, training or community investment over the long term.

We also recognise that our activities consume resources and have impacts on the broader global environment, and that we have a responsibility to minimise and redress harmful impacts and to optimise positive benefits.

We build sound safety, environmental, and social management practices into all aspects of our business.
We strive for continuous improvement in our environmental, safety and social management performance.

Our sustainable development strategy is built around four key pillars:

  • Economically viable investments
  • Technically appropriate operations
  • Environmentally sound practices
  • Socially responsible actions

We aim to deliver this strategy by:

  • Implementing sound corporate governance practices
  • Implementing environmental management systems in line with an equivalent to ISO 14001:2015 Standard
  • Improving community relations through better communications, supporting sustainable community development programs and establishing formal grievance procedures
  • Respecting the human rights of our employees and communities
  • Implementing health and safety management systems based on an equivalent to the OHSAS/BSI 18001:2015 Standard
  • Transparent reporting on operations and activities

Within our sustainability strategy we have a strong focus on Corporate Social Responsibility projects that are specifically developed to assist the communities which host our operations.
