Royal Bafokeng Platinum included on the JSE's SRI index

Annually, the JSE applies a comprehensive set of criteria to produce its SRI Index, which tracks the sustainability performance of companies listed on the JSE. This year the criteria included:

  • environmental issues including policy, management and reporting;
  • employee issues including training and development, employee relations, equal opportunities, health and safety, HIV/Aids;
  • social issues such as black economic empowerment, community involvement, stakeholder engagement and reporting; and
  • governance issues including board practice, codes of ethics, risk management, global economic issues and governance reporting.

Steve Phiri, RBPlat’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed his gratitude at being included on the index. ”Sustainable development is of particular importance to RBPlat, and in line with our ‘more than mining’ philosophy. We seek opportunities that create intrinsic value for our stakeholders, empowering them to pursue greater objectives for themselves. Our inclusion on the SRI Index is testament to the progress we have made in achieving this goal. For this, I would like to congratulate my team who has worked hard to get the company where it is today.”
