Our Core purpose

Sibanye-Stillwater’s mining improves lives


Superior value creation for all our stakeholders through the responsible mining and beneficiation of our mineral resources.


In order to deliver on our vision to create superior value and improve lives, Sibanye-Stillwater aims to deliver sustained, positive cash flows to ensure robust profitability throughout the commodity cycle.


To strengthen our position as a leading international precious metals mining company by:

  • Deleveraging our balance sheet
  • Maintaining our focus on operational excellence
  • Addressing our South African discount
  • Consistently delivering on our market commitments
  • Pursuing value-accretive growth based on a strengthened equity rating
  • Improving our position on the global industry cost curves


In living our values, we show that we care about safe production, our stakeholders, our environment, our company and our future. Our approach is holistic. We are focused on delivery on all strategic imperatives critical to Sibanye-Stillwater’s long-term success.


    By providing employment, Sibanye-Stillwater enables those employed to earn an income, acquire skills and, with training and development, to advance in a work environment where their safety, health and wellbeing are priorities.


    Sibanye-Stillwater delivers value to shareholders by delivering superior returns through capital appreciation, spurred by operational efficiency, costefficient capital management and acquisitive growth.


    Sibanye-Stillwater contributes to communities, broader society (including suppliers), and the economy by investing in socioeconomic development initiatives, employing those who reside in the vicinity of our operations and through preferential local procurement.


    Sibanye-Stillwater contributes directly to the national fiscus by way of taxes and royalties paid, enabling government to provide social infrastructure and services. We also contribute indirectly through the payment by employees of personal income tax and of municipal rates and taxes.
