We are committed to protecting the environment for present and future generations and work to avoid, minimise and mitigate any negative environmental impacts where we operate. We aim to improve lives through responsible environmental practices including verifiable compliance, risk management and environmental and water footprint management in anticipation of post-mining socio-economic closure.
We have aligned our environmental priority of “Improving life through the sustainable use of our natural resources, driving environmental consciousness and continuous improvement, with measured transition to a carbon neutral future” with the Group’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.
We are also cognisant that we, as a Group, have a fundamental role to play in addressing the global warming crisis from an operational perspective. It is in this context that Sibanye-Stillwater has committed to a transition to carbon neutrality by 2040, in support of the Paris Climate Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our goal is underpinned by our Energy and Decarbonisation strategy and implementation plan that is both clear and achievable.
