An economic and social sustainability model

The South African gold mining industry is facing challenging times. We, as leaders of South Africa’s gold companies, want to start a constructive conversation with the leaders of organised labour and our employees that will contribute to the sustainability of the gold industry and, as a result, the retention of employment.

We believe that all stakeholders need to place the viability of our industry and the jobs it provides at the centre of our discourse, recognising that a number of variables play a role in the viability and longevity of our operations. We have the opportunity collectively to shape the industry’s future through a process of visible information-sharing and transparency, and by working together to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.
