About this report

Compliance with international reporting guidelines

This report complies with the G4 guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). These guidelines are the benchmark for sustainability reporting globally. We report at a core level against the guidelines, which means we assess what is material for our business and focus our reporting on these aspects.

AngloGold Ashanti is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and this report serves as the 2014 Communication on Progress (COP) for the business. It is also aligned with the Sustainable Development Framework of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), of which AngloGold Ashanti is a member.

The section on External charters which guide us gives additional detail of compliance with other reporting frameworks, such as the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPSHR).
