4.1 Corporate governance

Our achievement of global leadership in sustainable gold mining – and our ability to fulfil our stakeholder promises (p16) – requires ‘integrated’ corporate governance of the highest level. This means a governance framework that actively supports the proactive and effective management of those strategic dynamics that will ultimately determine our long-term sustainability – whether operational, economic, social, environmental or otherwise.

This approach is essential given the long-term, capital intensive nature of our mining projects – as well as the sometimes challenging contexts in which we need to operate. It not only requires us to ensure our business remains profitable, but that we also deliver clear economic, social and environmental benefits wherever we operate.

Our management approach is underpinned by our commitment to sound and robust corporate governance standards, which is essential to our ultimate operational and strategic success.
