Our material issues

By looking closely at practical issues we’ve found some real opportunities to make a difference that align closely to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals – of which we are a recognised supporting organisation.

  • We can tackle disease and improve quality of life by investing further in health and safety, while taking steps to grow talent and engagement among everyone who works with us.
  • We can stand up for the rights of those who live where we operate, while helping bring stability by upholding our standards.
  • We can build infrastructure and support regional development in the places where we operate, 86% of which are in developing countries.
  • We can do more to bring much needed water and sanitation to communities through our mining. And we can work harder to address climate change by finding new ways to reduce our carbon impact.

Human rights principles guide how we tackle these issues and inform our values as a business.

Our commitment to human rights is expressed in the Anglo American Human Rights Policy, our Human Rights Framework, through our status as a signatory to both the United Nations Global Compact – where we publicly report on our activities annually in our Communication on Progress (COP) – and Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPSHR), and by our support of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Additionally, we outline our full commitment to an ethical value chain that includes respecting human rights and is free of modern slavery in our UK Modern Slavery Act statement. You can view last year’s statement here.

Policy influence

We are committed to being transparent about our political engagement and prohibit political donations in any circumstances, either directly or through third parties.

Our dealings with governments and parliaments revolve largely around the practical detail of obtaining and maintaining our licence to operate in line with our Code of Conduct, but we will also express our opinion on questions around wider mining policy when called to do so.

Policies, standards and principles

Our comprehensive set of policies, standards and principles ensure that we uphold the commitments we make to our stakeholders and work towards a common set of ambitions.

Who are our stakeholders

Everyone’s a stakeholder in the sustainable value we promise to create.

But, some have a more direct stake: those who live in the areas we mine; our employees and their trade unions; our shareholders, investors and analysts; governments and NGOs; our suppliers and contractors; our customers and our business peers.

By building relationships that last, we’re working to turn our stakeholders into partners for the future.

Collaborating to make a difference

A transparent way of working

We take every opportunity to be clear and open in the way we conduct business, and we support those working to promote transparency across our industry.

We’re part of the UN Global Compact against corruption, we support the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and we follow the EU Transparency Directive.

We also work with groups such as the Africa Progress Panel to support development through more transparent ways of working.

Our code of conduct

Our Code of Conduct is a single point of reference for everyone associated with the Anglo American Group – as well as the departure point for a fuller understanding of our ethical policies and procedures.

It sets out ‘how’ we behave to reinforce our values, and ‘what’ we do to help protect Anglo American’s name, and to make a positive difference.

*The Code of Conduct identifies the standards of conduct that Anglo American expects of its directors, employees, contractors, consultants, suppliers, agents and other business partners in order to promote behaviour consistent with our core values. The existence of the Code of Conduct in itself should not be taken as providing any representation or any other assurance that Anglo American complies with any standard or policy specified, although the Code of Conduct is intended to help support compliance. The Code of Conduct does not create any benefit or rights in favour of, and is not enforceable by, any third party.
