Good citizenship

At Anglo American, our Good Citizenship business principles guide our decisions and actions. Wherever we are in the world, we adhere to consistently high standards of business integrity and ethics.

Balancing investor returns with community well-being

As a good corporate citizen, we respect the dignity and human rights of individuals and communities everywhere we operate. We strive to make a lasting contribution to the well-being of these communities while generating strong investor returns.

Indeed, our long-term success depends on taking into account the needs of all stakeholders.

Being a good employer and steward

A good corporate citizen is, by definition, a good employer. We universally support fair labour practices and promote workplace safety and equality in our operations.

We also recognise the need for careful environmental stewardship. We actively seek to minimise the impact of our operations and provide a positive legacy for generations to come.

Our Business Principles are available to download in multiple languages from our policies and standards page.


Safety is a core value of Anglo American and remains our first priority. Everyone who works in Anglo American has the right to go home without harm and our role is to make this a consistent reality. Our zero harm vision is to eliminate fatal injuries in the workplace and mine injury free.
