Environmental, social and governance report 2022
Driving transition through leadership
Welcome to our 2022 environmental, social and governance (ESG) report. The report outlines the collective impact of our ESG initiatives and commitments to drive our Sustainable Growth and Impact strategy and the just transition to a carbon neutral, sustainable future.

We maintained our leadership position in the FTSE Russell ESG Index driven by exemplary governance, record safety performance, economic empowerment of people and contributing to social progress through infrastructure development.

We manage our impact by incorporating environmental performance principles in our ESG management systems, environmental policies and practices. We comply with local legislation, management standards, and current and future-based best practice. Our approach goes beyond compliance as demonstrated by our participation in voluntary benchmarks such as the global CDP climate and water disclosure projects.

Our environmentally and socially responsible response to climate change reflects our commitment to sustainability and objective to become carbon neutral by 2050, and supports South Africa's just transition programmes.


Our sustainability is built on mutually beneficial relationships and the values we share with our stakeholders. Our business activities aim for holistic, positive and lasting impact on our people, communities and society at large.

We are driven by our responsibility to be accountable for our actions and to positively impact our people and communities. Our business activities promote socio-economic development in our communities while we strive for operational efficiency, growth and regulatory compliance.
