How we create and share value

Our vision is to create a better future – through the metals we produce, the way we do business, and our superior performance. The intent is to ensure sustainable value creation for all our stakeholders. By focussing on shared value outcomes, Implats creates economic value in a way that also creates value for society, by addressing its needs and challenges.

Managing ESG

We have a structured and systematic approach to managing our most significant social, economic and environmental impacts and to addressing the material interests of our stakeholders. Guided by our purpose and supported by our values, our approach is underpinned by a well-defined process for identifying and evaluating the risks and opportunities most material to the business.
