We have been a signatory to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) since its inception and we have published the payments we make to governments on an annual country-by-country basis. We also compile a wider Tax and Economic Contribution report – for 2017, see here.
This is built on the belief that to build trust and a sustainable licence to operate we need to have open and inclusive conversations about the cost-benefits of mining. We remain committed to the multi-stakeholder group approach that lies at the heart of the EITI accountability process and aim to replicate this approach everywhere we operate including in countries which are not EITI signatories (sadly the majority in our case).
Our Code of Conduct (see link below) outlines the expectations we have of ourselves, what our stakeholders can expect of us and what we expect of them. Business integrity, accountability and transparency are key core commitments.
All the companies within the Anglo American group including De Beers also require others in our supply chain to observe best practice and principles.
