Our key focus areas
Improving operational safety performance
Safety is our most important business consideration and we are committed to creating the safest possible working environment for our employees. Poor safety performance is unacceptable for the business, as well as for our stakeholders, business and social partners.
Managing health issues
In line with our values, we believe that we cannot accept ill health as a natural consequence of our business operations, and that our employees must be able to go home fit and well at the end of each working day.
Human rights and business
In our values we commit to treating others with dignity and respect, this includes respect for human rights and an undertaking to operate according to the highest standards of business ethics.
AngloGold Ashanti and communities
AngloGold Ashanti’s vision is to become the leading mining company which, in the context of sustainability, implies that we will adopt an approach which is inclusive and engaging of a broad range of stakeholders, including host communities and governments.
A life cycle approach: exploration and closure
The commitments made in our values imply that, even at the exploration phase of a project, we need to take into account the fact that our mines will eventually close. Rehabilitation costs must be provided for over the lifetime of the operation, and rehabilitation work must be undertaken in line with our commitment to respect the environment.
Environmental and natural resource stewardship
Our mining operations share scarce resources with the communities which host us and responsible stewardship of these resources and of the environment is therefore a moral imperative.
