Material sustainability issues
AngloGold Ashanti’s material sustainability issues include the sustainability-related risks and opportunities that could affect our ability to create value in the short, medium and long term, and are frequently interdependent.
We structure our sustainability investments and interventions to respond proactively to 10 priority material sustainability issues
Our people – employees and communities
People are at the heart of our business and are fundamental to our vision, strategy and values. This speaks just as much to our employees and their families as it does to the communities that we call home.
Climate action and resilience
Climate change is not only an environmental issue. Its cross-cutting nature means that it affects almost every dimension of our business.
AngloGold Ashanti’s environment policy continues to evolve and is centred on our commitment to avoid, minimise, and mitigate the impact of our activities on the environment. We proactively manage risks to air, land, biodiversity and water resources during the mining lifecycle.
Pursuing business sustainability and growth
Mining is a long-term business, and our business strategy aims to create sustained value over the period of our mining operations and beyond
