We are committed to creating and participating in more meaningful investment opportunities that support the sustainable development of our stakeholders, including black suppliers – particularly women, and youth. We do this by offering direct and indirect job opportunities, skills development, and supplier initiatives to help grow prosperous communities.
Since its inception in 2018, our ESD programme has allocated R438.1 million to 68 qualifying beneficiaries, of which 35.3% are majority youth owned, 36.8% are at least 30% women owned and 2.9% are majority owned by people with disabilities.
In addition, performance monitoring and evaluation of supported QSEs and EMEs are underway. Preliminary findings from a 2021 sample of 30 QSEs and EMEs who received funding of R251.6 million indicates that 1 230 jobs were retained, 959 new jobs were created (a 78% increase) and turnover increased by R554.3 million (a 119% increase).
We believe that socio-economic development can’t be achieved alone – we need to form strong partnerships to power better lives in Africa and beyond. Our suppliers are instrumental in achieving this vision.
We welcome the possibility of sustainable collaboration with suppliers to enable them to meet our standards, as outlined in the Exxaro Supplier Code of Conduct. The code reflects the core values of how our company operates and what we expect from our suppliers. It also regulates the standards that we regard as mandatory when selecting suppliers, followed with rigorous audits to ensure compliance.
Our Selection Process
We are looking for potential entrepreneurs and suppliers that can deliver results that meet our objectives and targets. Here’s what our supplier sustainability engagement selection process looks like for example:
We start off the process with self-assessments, where suppliers are expected to share more information about themselves. The data they supply is then evaluated and compared to standards set out by our sustainability engagement code.
Suppliers who meet these standards will receive recognition. Those who don’t however, will be required to provide documentation that outlines their plan of action to rectify their shortfalls.
Preferential Procurement Interventions
Supplier Development Interventions
Enterprise Development Interventions
While the mining industry faces great challenges from various influences, the key to remaining relevant is to incorporate emerging technologies into business operations, emphasize socio-economic reformation, and enforce a strong commitment to sustainability. All of which are already part of our strategy to power better lives in Africa and beyond.
