Looking forward, the internal Climate Change Working Group (CCWG) is leading the development of an updated climate change response for the company.
Its work includes development of new climate change objectives for AngloGold Ashanti that will enhance the climate resilience of our operations and host communities, framing our additional climate mitigation ambitions that are aligned with our business plans and supported by internal climate performance incentives.
AngloGold Ashanti set its first emissions reduction targets in 2008, which were met in 2017 and as a result, carbon intensity has reduced by 43% and overall emissions have almost halved.

“AngloGold Ashanti has almost halved its greenhouse gas emissions since 2008, an achievement which provides the foundation for the next leg of our climate journey. We are in the final stages of developing a new climate strategy, which will sharpen our evaluation and management of climate risks. We’re also working on framing a 2030 decarbonisation target as we move toward our ultimate goal of net zero by 2050”
