Taking responsibility

ESG performance

We deliver on our promises

We are committed to operating safely, sustainably and responsibly. We make no compromise in measuring and reporting our performance.

We have adopted the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 guidelines as the basis for our sustainable development reporting.

We measure our performance

We set targets for ourselves based on six pillars of value: safety and health; financial sustainability; mineral policy and legislative compliance; labour relations and our performance; community development; and access to and allocation of natural resources.

We do no harm to our workforce

We offer a responsible choice for investors

We have chosen to be included in independent investment indices that benchmark and track the most socially responsible companies.

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an independent not-for-profit organisation which acts as an intermediary between shareholders and corporations on all climate change related issues, providing primary climate change data from the world’s largest corporations to the global marketplace. The Group has supported the project since it began. In 2013, Anglo American Platinum received two gold certificates for achieving 99% (2012: 96%) for our disclosure in respect of the CDP’s annual survey of the top 100 companies and an A in the performance band on the JSE 100 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index.

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange Socially Responsible Investment Index reflects South Africa’s increased focus on sustainable investment. The Group has been part of the Index since it began in 2004. In 2013, Anglo American Platinum was assessed one of the six best performers, meeting additional levels of performance in the four areas of measurement of environment, society, governance and climate change.

Together we make a difference

The ICCM Sustainable Development Framework

The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICCM), established in 2001, acts as a catalyst for performance improvement in the mining and metals industry. We believe that our policies, processes and systems are fully aligned with the ICMM’s 10 principles for sustainable development.

More information can also be found in our Sustainable Development Report.

UN Global Compact

Our Group has been part of the UN Global Compact; on human rights, environmental stewardship, labour rights and anti-corruption since 2004. We follow the Compact’s 10 principles. We believe the Compact is a way to work with other stakeholders towards safe, responsible and sustainable mining. You can read our Communication on Progress here.
