Sustainability Performance

We do everything we can to ensure that our activities leave a positive and lasting legacy, long after our mines close.

We call this 'Building Forever'.

See how our committment can be found in key statistics of our performance.


Ensuring that value is created beyond our own operations, and for the societies in which we work, has always been important for our business. And through strong partnerships we are able to deliver profits for our shareholders, alongside benefits for our host countries and communities.
