Exxaro's environmental, social and governance (ESG) report for 2019 expands on information in the integrated report 2019 and the 2019 consolidated Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves report. It also contains the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) index.
Exxaro is committed to contributing positively to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To this end, in South Africa, we participate in the National Business Initiative to align the 17 SDGs with the country's National Development Plan. Exxaro is committed, through its strategy, to supporting the country in the implementation of the National Development Plan and the SDGs.
We employ leading practices in upholding the most material SDGs for our business to leave a lasting net positive impact.
Exxaro as a mining company and in line with its purpose to power possibilities, intentionally focus on the following SDGs:
|Ensure healthy lives

To date, Exxaro has worked to embed integrated thinking in terms of the six capitals into its business operations and strategy.

We will then focus on embedding these goals within our business.
