Our approach to reporting


AngloGold Ashanti seeks to report on sustainability performance in an integrated and holistic way, taking into account a broad range of stakeholder requirements and current best practice. Our reporting is guided by the South African King Code on Corporate Governance 2009 (King III), which became effective on 1 March 2010, and requires companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) to issue an integrated report covering financial and non-financial items.

AngloGold Ashanti issued its first Integrated Report for the year ended 31 December 2011. The Integrated Report will serve as the company’s primary report and will be augmented by more detailed reports, including:

  • this Sustainability Report and supplementary sustainability data;
  • the Annual Financial Statements; and
  • the Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve Report.

Our sustainability reporting is compiled using a number of global sustainability reporting guidelines, principally the G3 guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainable Development Framework of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).

All reports are available online at Printed reports can be requested via the AngloGold Ashanti website or from
