While we pride ourselves on the excellence of our work, we recognise that it is also our industry-leading approach to sustainable development that gives us a competitive edge. For us, sustainable development means having an unwavering focus on Zero Harm and a commitment to environmental sustainability, as well as being a valued member of the minerals industry of the communities in which we operate.

Our non-financial sustainability performance against key health, safety and environment (HSE) and social criteria is reported annually in our Sustainable Development Report. Each of our operations reports quarterly against these pre-determined metrics, a summary of which is provided in our annual Sustainable Development Scorecard.
