Corporate citizenship

Companies operating in the extractive industries in developing countries face increasing expectations on the social and environmental front. Mwana Africa recognizes this challenge. As a dynamic, entrepreneurial company, our vision and strategy articulate our commitment to the core business practices that underpin our support for sustainable development. Our aim is to strengthen returns for our investors while also benefiting other stakeholders, including our employees and the communities which our operations impact.

Mwana Africa’s reputation for responsible and sustainable development has been established by ensuring a safe working environment for its staff, by positively engaging with the communities in which it operates, and by minimising the environmental impact of its activities.

The company’s primary contribution to the areas in which it operates is the stimulation of economic activity through the creation of jobs, development and support of local businesses, the use of local contractors, and the purchase of goods and services from nearby suppliers. The focus of Mwana Africa’s social initiatives continues to be in education, health, and enterprise development, in particular in support of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to diversify local economies and reduce dependence on Mwana’s operations as the sole significant employer in the areas in which we operate.

We actively engage with our stakeholders through a variety of formal and informal meetings, briefings, surveys, and feedback sessions on issues raised.
