Anglo American

About Us

What we do

Anglo American is a globally diversified mining business. Our portfolio of world-class competitive mining operations and undeveloped resources provides the raw materials to meet the growing consumer-driven demands of the world’s developed and maturing economies. Our people are at the heart of our business. It is our people who use the latest technologies to find new resources, plan and build our mines and who mine, process and move and market our products to our customers around the world.

As a responsible miner - of diamonds (through De Beers), platinum and other precious metals, copper, nickel, iron ore and coal - we are the custodians of what are precious natural resources. We work together with our key partners and stakeholders to unlock the long-term value that those resources represent for our shareholders and for the communities and countries in which we operate – creating sustainable value and making a real difference.

Our business

For 100 years we have been mining the minerals that society needs to develop and prosper.
As we set out in our strategy in 2016, the high quality assets across our De Beers, platinum group metals and copper businesses underpin our leading market positions and are the cornerstone of a more resilient and competitive Anglo American, through the economic and commodity price cycle. In addition, we continue to benefit from the performance of a number of other world class assets across the bulk commodities of iron ore and coal, as well as nickel.
We are adapting to create a streamlined and agile business, with the technical and marketing expertise and critical mass to compete effectively for, and to deliver, future opportunities, both within and beyond our portfolio.
Our mining operations, future growth projects and exploration and marketing activities will extend across Southern Africa, South and North America, Australia, Asia and Europe.

We want to become

While our aim has always been to generate returns for our shareholders, how we accomplish this is by striving to make a real and lasting contribution to society which fundamentally defines us as a company. We believe that this is best done through forming mutually beneficial partnerships, as reflected in our vision: “Partners in the future”.

Why we exist and what guides us

We have also captured this idea in our mission: “Together we create sustainable value that makes a real difference”. This is underpinned by our core values of safety, innovation, accountability, care and respect, integrity and collaboration. We are creating an organisation where all people are treated in such a way that they willingly give of their best.

We work together

Achieving this will only be possible through our people, who are the business. Our organisation model empowers our people to realise their full potential and that of our assets by ensuring that the right people are in the right roles, doing the right work. Our operating model provides a structured approach to how we define, organise and deliver that work to improve our performance, enabling consistent delivery against expectations. The BLAST Programme supports this business model as we establish our young emerging talent pipeline.

Anglo American: Real mining. Real people. Real difference.
