Delivering today for a better tomorrow

"Most of what we do in Kumba comes back to four things: are we using our operations to the best of our ability, are we creating value for all involved, are we able to grow the business and is this a responsible action?"

The foundations of a sustainable future are put down today. We realise that if we fail to deliver on our goals now, we will have no sustainable future to offer tomorrow. To ensure we are delivering on our commitment, we measure and report on our performance.

Measuring change

We have established a set of key performance indicators to measure our delivery against our commitment to delivering a sustainable future.

Commitment KPI
Zero harm Lost time injury frequency rates (LTIFR)
Fatality rates

Women in core mining

Community development Housing units constructed

Keeping the future in mind

Being a good corporate citizen is about respect and responsibility. This means we must play our part in supporting human rights globally. While the primary responsibility for the protection of human rights lies with governments, we recognise the responsibility of business to respect human rights.

In seeking to promote the observance of human rights in the countries in which we operate we subscribe to observe and promote the rights and principles enshrined in the following:

  • The universally recognised rights entrenched in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948
  • The United Nations Global Compact
  • The International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
  • The Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights
  • The Global Sullivan Principles
  • The Constitution of South Africa
