In 2012 AngloGold Ashanti was selected as a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index (DJSI Emerging Markets).
AngloGold Ashanti continues to strive toward creating a sustainable gold mining business, characterised by safe work practises that promote the interests of all stakeholders including the communities and countries in which we operate. Particular focus continues to be placed on ensuring we have the commitment and expertise to continue improving the performance of the company in the fields of environmental stewardship, human rights, economic development, and health and safety.
World and Industry best practise in sustainability remains our goal. While our selection to Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index is an important milestone, realise there remains much for us to do on this journey.
The Dow Jones Sustainability™ Indices are maintained collaboratively by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM. The indices measure the performance of companies on sustainability performance and the DJSI is an important reference for investors.
“Companies are selected for the indices based on a comprehensive assessment of long-term economic, environmental and social criteria that account for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends. Only firms that lead their industries based on this assessment are included in the indices.”
