Responding to environmental challenges

Compliance with environmental norms and standards is integral to how we manage the environmental and social impacts of our operations. In practice, this means we always consider and prioritise ways to limit the impacts of our activities, while striving to ensure our presence realises positive benefits for all our stakeholders, in particular, the communities in which we operate.

Our ability to further mitigate our environmental impacts and respond to significant changes in environmental policy and legislation represents one of our most material risks. This is particularly the case in South Africa, where the policy and regulatory framework relating to air quality, climate change, water, waste and contaminated land management is rapidly evolving.
