Guiding values

At Anglo American we are striving to become the leading global mining company. To achieve this ambition we have identified six values to help guide how we behave and interact with others.

Safety

Safety

This is always first on our agenda – and with very good reason. We truly believe that ALL injuries are preventable and that by working together we can make safety a way of life, inside and outside the workplace.

Care and Respect

Care and Respect

We always treat people with respect, dignity and common courtesy – regardless of their background, lifestyle or position. And we're building trust through open, two-way communication every single day.

Integrity

Integrity

This means taking an honest, fair, ethical and transparent approach in everything we do. It’s not about being popular; it’s about always doing the right thing.

Accountability

Accountability

We take ownership of our decisions, our actions and our results. We deliver on our promises and acknowledge our mistakes. Above all we never pass blame.

Collaboration

Collaboration

No-one here is on their own. We’re one company with a joint ambition – all working together to make decisions and get things done more effectively.

Innovation

Innovation

Challenging the way things have always been done is a key priority for us. By actively developing new solutions, encouraging new ways of thinking and finding new ways of working, we’re dramatically improving business.
