The sustainability programme upon which Zimplats’ business is anchored has economic, social and environmental considerations as the three pillars of strategic focus. Success in these three strategic areas ensures sustainable symbiotic relationships between the organisation, its communities and ecosystems. The Group acknowledges the importance of its key stakeholders and the impact that they may have on the business or alternatively the impact that the Group may have on the stakeholders. To this end, stakeholder engagement is an integral part of business operations and it is essential in managing risk and building social capital. The Group recognises and works with both internal and external stakeholders. Please refer to the sustainability section of our integrated report for further detail. The sustainability report addresses the key tenets of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines. Zimplats prepares the sustainability report in accordance with the GRI G4 “Core” reporting guidelines.
