Mark Cutifani, Anglo American CEO

Anglo American, on 13 March 2018, launched its Sustainability Strategy, outlining an ambitious and innovative approach to three major areas of sustainability – the environment, community development, and driving greater trust and transparency across the mining industry – including specific stretch goals to be delivered between now and 2030.

“Our metals and minerals are the precious ingredients that enable and celebrate so many aspects of our modern lives. But our role in today’s world is far greater than simply as a supplier of physical products. If Anglo American is to play its part in creating a sustainable future for the world and improving the lives of all of us who live here, then we must be prepared to challenge our business and ourselves, by re-imagining mining,” said Mark Cutifani, Anglo American Chief Executive Officer.

Anglo American’s Sustainability Strategy is part of FutureSmart Mining, the company’s innovation-led approach to sustainable mining.

“Delivering on these commitments will transform the way Anglo American does business. Keeping our people and the environment safe, supporting excellent education, and using our unique approach of collaborative regional development to further enhance our ability to provide truly sustainable benefits for our host communities present a different picture of the future of mining.”

“The financial benefits to our business by 2030 are expected to be significant, including from substantially reduced energy and water costs. At the same time, we expect our innovative approach and the technologies we are developing to open up new mineral resource opportunities for us over the medium term”, added Mark Cutifani.
