Our vision at Sibanye-Stillwater is to create superior value for all our stakeholders through the mining of our mineral resources. The sustainable management of our operations is integral to our ability to obtain and maintain our social licence to operate and to generate long-term value for all of our stakeholders, including employees, the communities where we operate, governments and shareholders.

Our CARES values – commitment, accountability, respect, enabling, and safety – are at the core of our approach to sustainability. These values support safe operations, enable growth, underpin business strategy and promote competitiveness and success. Our values are embedded in the work we do and reinforced by continuous communication, education and training.  

We represent our commitment to our CARES values through the indigenous South African Umdoni tree. Our CARES values are the fundamental roots of our organisation, which provide a solid basis for the way we do business. The trunk of the tree represents the material strength of the company and the leaves on the branches represent all our stakeholders. The tree’s seeds and fruits signify the varying benefits and value that our success will bring to those stakeholders.
