Ethical Management

As a company listed on AIM on the London Stock Exchange, we understand the importance of good corporate governance.

We strive to run our business ethically and fairly for all stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, and the community. We don't discriminate based on gender, race, colour, or religion.

Our board of directors is responsible for overseeing the company's sustainability efforts. It is supported by the ESG committee, which is made up of board members, Terence Goodlace, Laurence Robb and Anthony Viljoen, plus others from the executive management and ESG teams. They advise the board and meet regularly to review progress.

The people in charge of implementing our sustainability policies and reaching our goals are the corporate services executive and the group ESG manager. We also have specialised employees at the mine who focus on the environment, health and safety, as well as community relations.

These teams work together to ensure that we are prospering in areas such as health, safety, stakeholder relationships, environmental management and beyond.
