Our operations comprise around 150 mining, metallurgical and oil production assets. Our purpose is to responsibly source the commodities that advance everyday life. We do this by delivering on our strategy to be active at every stage of the commodity supply chain. Our diversity by geography, product and activity, maximises the value we create for our business and its diverse stakeholders.
