Our vision: to make a positive difference in the world

About Us

Company Profile

In November 2006, Kumba Resources Limited unbundled and Kumba’s coal and other assets merged with Eyesizwe Coal to create Exxaro Resources Limited. We have since grown to become one of the largest and foremost black-empowered coal and heavy mineral companies in South Africa, with other business interests around the world in Europe, the United States of America, and Australia. Our asset portfolio includes coal operations and investments in iron ore, pigment manufacturing, renewable energy (wind), and residual base metals.

BEE Ownership Structure

Exxaro is a sum of all its smaller working parts. This is how our organisation is structured.

Strategic Vision

At Exxaro, our vision is as simple as this: we want to make a positive impact on the world. We aim to power better lives in Africa and beyond by responsibly investing in commodities that will sustain life on the continent.

This goal is being realised by supplying basic and primary needs, the things that keep us functioning as a society, through energy, water, and food. We manage to do all this through our primary commodity – coal – which we are using to fuel our future. Through our growth and innovation, we are working towards becoming an unstoppable source of endless possibilities.

We know none of this is possible without our people. Their imagination and passion is what constantly nourishes our journey to change the world for the better.

Exxaro encourages collaboration, commitment and creativity in an environment that promotes safety, health, and welfare – and where respect and equality are prerequisites. We know that our highly qualified workforce will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.


Transformation is a core focus of Exxaro – we develop our people and reward top performers.

We fully support transformation through economic empowerment ownership. We strongly believe the proposed replacement BEE transaction (announced in 2016) has a greater ability to create wealth through its reduced debt risk profile, which in turn contributes to sustainable empowerment.


Exxaro is lead by a team of Board of Directors, and an Executive Committee committed to driving success.


Everything we do today is geared toward ensuring a safer and more productive tomorrow. Our sustainability is founded on creative, mutually constructive relationships and common values with our stakeholders.
