We aim to balance the economic, social and environmental aspects of our business, which are all essential to our sustainability. We are proud of the good relationships we have built with all our stakeholders through consultative forums with organised labour and community structures.
Our code of conduct is based on the ethical values of integrity, competence, responsibility, accountability, fairness and transparency that underpin good corporate governance. We recognise that exercising business judgement must also consider the impact of Assmang’s business model, activities and outputs on the broader economy, society and environment.
We aim to minimise these impacts while capitalising on opportunities to contribute to growth and development in the societies in which we operate.
Assmang’s values explicitly acknowledge that social responsibility, good corporate governance and environmental stewardship are essential aspects of generating economic value for shareholders and social benefit for stakeholders.
The 2019 Sustainable Development Report provides more detail on our performance and approach to sustainable mining.
