Offering a responsible choice for investors

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

FTSE4Good

The FTSE plays an active role in sustainable investment and has included us in the FTSE4Good Index since 2011.

Carbon Disclosure Project

The Carbon Disclosure Project provides a way for companies to share information about their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies. We’ve supported the project since it began. In 2013 we achieved an ‘A’ carbon performance rating.

Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes

We’ve been part of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes since 2003 – the original sustainability index.

Johannesburg Stock Exchange Socially Responsible Investment Index

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange Socially Responsible Investment Index reflects South Africa’s increased focus on sustainable investment. We’ve been part of the index since it began in 2004, achieving best performance several times.

International Council on Mining and Metals

The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) was established in 2001 to act as a catalyst for performance improvement in the mining and metals industry. As a founding signatory, we believe that our policies, processes and systems are fully aligned to the ICMM’s ten principles for sustainable development.

UN Global Compact

Since 2004 we’ve been part of the UN Global Compact on human rights, environmental stewardship, labour rights and anti-corruption.

Our strategy and all our operations follow the Compact’s ten principles. For us the Compact is also a way to work with other stakeholders towards a future of safe, responsible and sustainable mining. You can read our Communition of Progress on the Global Compact website.

“Our commitment to the Global Compact is consistent with our long-standing view that when conducted responsibly, mining delivers significant economic and social value.”

Sir John Parker, our Chairman
