At South Deep, our journey towards being a beacon of pride means not only meeting but exceeding the targets proposed in the Mining Charter 2010 guidelines for Inclusive Procurement, Supplier and Enterprise Development while contributing to socio-economic development of communities we operate in. Our Mine’s targets are outlined on page 83 and 84 of our Social and Labour Plan, which can be accessed here. We reflect periodically on how we are doing in terms of how we are achieving our targets, and this information is reflected on our Procurement performance page here.
