Mark Cutifani presentation to Bank of America Global Metals, Mining and Steel Conference


Anglo American Chief Executive, Mark Cutifani, today presents an overview of how Anglo American is "Delivering through volatile times" at Bank of America's annual Global Metals, Mining and Steel Conference.


Mr Cutifani said: "We continue to focus on delivering across the many facets of our business. Most immediately, we are proactively managing the health, social and economic effects of the pandemic, considering the entire ecosystem of our business. Our global WeCare programme supports both lives and livelihoods - of our people, their families and our host communities, spanning four pillars: physical health, mental health, living with dignity, and community response. Our operations and host communities must both be healthy to prosper on a sustainable basis.


"The significant and broad-based improvements we have made to our business stand us in good stead, both during this uncertain time and as we move towards the economic recovery phase. Our portfolio and asset quality position us well for the recovery, leveraging our technical, operational and product marketing capabilities to deliver the best returns from our asset base. We see further transformational improvements ahead through our P101 and FutureSmart MiningTM programmes, including driving our operations towards carbon neutrality before 2040. In combination with our ongoing portfolio evolution - with Quellaveco in copper, and Woodsmith in crop nutrients, and our expected exit from our thermal coal operations in South Africa in the next two to three years - we are well positioned for future demand themes and the needs of modern consumers and society."

About WeCare


WeCare is Anglo American's global response programme to support the lives and livelihoods of our workforce and host communities through the health, social and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our mines and host communities, which are also often home to much of our workforce, operate as an ecosystem and both must be healthy to prosper.


Across our operational footprint and in those communities that are local to our operations, our WeCare programme provides information and extensive practical support across four pillars of: physical health, mental health, living with dignity, and community response.


Physical Health - education and behavioural change to support personal health and hygiene; health screening and testing; PPE and medical equipment and facilities.


Mental Health - employee support programmes to assist with mental health management, including employee App and online events and digital materials.


Living with Dignity - direct employee and community support to combat gender-based and domestic violence; work with health authorities to identify abuse cases and referrals to support mechanisms.


Community Response - wide-ranging livelihoods programme to support communities through the social and economic effects of the pandemic, including: public information campaigns aimed at health and hygiene; health screening and COVID-19 testing; support for health service provision; continuation of essential services (e.g. water, energy, accommodation); food package distribution; employee match-giving programme; support for SMEs and entrepreneurs; support for teachers and students; job training for post-pandemic employability; regional development planning to enhance local economic activity for the long term.




Anglo American is a leading global mining company and our products are the essential ingredients in almost every aspect of modern life. Our portfolio of world-class competitive mining operations and undeveloped resources provides the metals and minerals that enable a cleaner, greener, more sustainable world and that meet the fast growing consumer-driven demands of the world's developed and maturing economies. With our people at the heart of our business, we use innovative practices and the latest technologies to discover new resources and mine, process, move and market our products to our customers around the world - safely, responsibly and sustainably.


As a responsible miner - of diamonds (through De Beers), copper, platinum group metals, iron ore, steelmaking and thermal coal, and nickel - we are the custodians of what are precious natural resources. We work together with our business partners and diverse stakeholders to unlock the sustainable value that those resources represent for our shareholders, the communities and countries in which we operate, and for society as a whole. Anglo American is re-imagining mining to improve people's lives.
