We are Glencore
Glencore’s marketing activities in South Africa began in 1974, with mining starting 14 years later, in 1988. Over the years, we have established a strong presence in South Africa’s coal and ferroalloy sectors, and have become a major contributor to the country’s local, provincial and national economies.
We are a major contributor not only to South Africa’s local, provincial and national economies, but also to the development of the communities where we operate. We collaborate closely with our communities, prioritising their health, safety and well-being and working to create strong and resilient societies that will thrive long after our operations close.
