Our Business Strategy

Our Vision:

To produce resources that Power a Clean World. Powering Better Lives in Africa and Beyond is our purpose.

This is what drives our ambition to provide resources (beyond just commodities) that are critical in a low-carbon world.

Our Sustainable Growth Impact Strategy enables us to deliver on this vision and our success lies in the strength of organisations’ our culture and values. Through our strategy, we aim to transform Exxaro in a systematic and integrated manner into a diversified company that will transition from a coal base to a minerals and renewable energy solutions business that will thrive in a low-carbon future.

Guided by our purpose to Power Better Lives in Africa and Beyond, we understand that we cannot grow sustainably without deliberately creating a positive impact in the environment and communities we serve. We remain committed to responsibly maximising the value of our coal assets whilst we play an active role in creating a future which enables our vision – “Resources Powering a Cleaner World.”

Strategic Objectives

To create sustainable growth and impact, we are focusing on five objectives.

Our purpose as a company is to Power Better Lives in Africa and Beyond by responsibly investing in resources that Power a Clean World. We are also proud to embrace the principles of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Our Community
Our Community

We strongly believe that communities are central to our success. Our growth is dependent on our employees and the people we partner with around the country. Socio-economic development has always formed part of Exxaro’s DNA.

Our Impact at Scale

Our Impact at Scale

  • Collaboration with diverse partners who complement Exxaro’s capabilities
  • A common goal for all partners
  • Focused resources to ensure dedication to the vision, skills development and quality results
  • Diversity and inclusion to maintain the momentum of transformation (focusing on women, youth and people living with disabilities)
  • Market-driven migration of enterprises from subsistence to commercial operations
Community Development

Community Development

Our community development initiatives are successful but not far-reaching, as they are constrained by localised impact and lack of local government capacity. The socio-economic and environmental challenges are exacerbated by rising unemployment (aggravated by COVID-19) and poverty. Exxaro and government cannot resolve these challenges on their own.

Our impact at scale approach recognises the opportunity to reference legislative requirements, such as the Mining Charter III and the Department of Trade and Industry’s B-BBEE codes, as the foundation for our work with government. We also see an opportunity to lead better and bigger development initiatives that will arrest and reverse the scourge on our communities.
