For our host countries and communities

We are guests in our host countries and communities and rely on their support, goodwill and cooperation to function successfully. Therefore, contributing to their social and economic development has been a central pillar of our business since inception.

Our 2016 materiality assessment highlighted several community and economic development aspects as priority issues for our stakeholders. These included ‘local and national employment’, ‘closure planning’, ‘malaria’, ‘HIV/AIDS’, ‘community development’ and ‘local economic development’. All of these issues are addressed in the Sustainability section of our Annual Report.
