Implats is acutely aware of the changing socio-political environment facing mining companies today. The low economic growth rate has resulted in greater hardship, increased unemployment in mining communities and the cost of living rising faster than inflation. We have put in place targeted employee and community initiatives that build trust and foster a shared vision as well as a social compact with our stakeholders. These include employee equity-ownership schemes, an industry-leading housing and accommodation strategy, skills development programmes, local employment, procurement and social investment.
