Our Brand

The Diversified Miner

Anglo American is a global and diversified mining business that provides the raw materials that are essential for economic development and modern life. Our people are at the heart of our business. It is our people who use the latest technologies to find new resources, plan and build our mines and mine, process, move and market our products, from bulk commodities and base metals to precious metals and diamonds which go to our customers around the world. Our diversified portfolio of products spans the economic development cycle and presents us with many options to create value and opportunities to work more effectively and efficiently. This includes where we choose to allocate capital and time to grow the business and how we enhance our margins across the value chain to deliver sustainable returns. As a responsible miner we are the custodians of these precious resources. We need to work together with our key partners and stakeholders to unlock the long-term value that those resources represent for our shareholders but also for the communities and countries in which we operate. Why?Because we believe that attractive returns are sustainable only if we also deliver value to society, as judged by these key stakeholders.

Our businesses

For almost 100 years we have been mining the minerals that society needs to develop and prosper. We provide our investors with a balanced portfolio of opportunities as we find, plan and build, mine, process, move and market to our customers a diversified and high quality range of products, spanning bulk commodities, base metals and minerals, and precious metals and minerals.

We want to become

While our aim has always been to generate returns for our shareholders, how we accomplish this is by striving to make a real and lasting contribution to society which fundamentally defines us as a company. We believe that this is best done through forming mutually beneficial partnerships, as reflected in our vision: “Partners in the future”.

Why we exist and what guides us

We have also captured this idea in our mission: “Together we create sustainable value that makes a real difference”. This is underpinned by our core values of safety, innovation, accountability, care and respect, integrity and collaboration. We are creating an organisation where all people are treated in such a way that they willingly give of their best.

We work together

Achieving this will only be possible through our people, who are the business. Our organisation model empowers our people to realise their full potential and that of our assets by ensuring that the right people are in the right roles, doing the right work. Our operating model provides a structured approach to how we define, organise and deliver that work to improve our performance, enabling consistent delivery against expectations. The Bursary Programme supports this business model as we establish our young emerging talent pipeline.

Anglo American: Real mining. Real people. Real difference.
