We contribute to society throughout our value chain, via employment, procurement, enterprise development, infrastructure and social investment programmes.

Our sustainability strategy includes an objective to foster sustainable growth and respect human rights wherever we operate. Our operations have a significant effect on the communities in which we work, and on society as a whole. It is our responsibility to minimise any negative impact and to support sustainable development and growth.

We are committed to respecting the human rights of our workforce and host communities. We engage with our host communities through regular dialogue, and work closely with them to maximise the value our business creates for them and for society. We actively seek broad-based, ongoing support from our local communities. This includes grievance mechanisms to receive, record and action complaints.

We work with a variety of stakeholders to support increased transparency around the redistribution and reinvestment of payments to governments. We support the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI).
