Ethics and governance

Renewing the vision, mission and values

In late 2007, AngloGold Ashanti embarked on a consultative process to review the company’s mission, vision and values. The process was built on the launch of the ‘Safety is our first value’ campaign at the South African operations in November 2007, and was developed further through interactions between executive management and employees in a range of different interventions over the following months.

In respect of ethics and governance, the AngloGold Ashanti values specifically note that:

We are accountable for our actions and undertake to deliver on our commitments.

We are focused on delivering results and we do what we say we will do. We accept responsibility and hold ourselves accountable for our work, our behaviour, our ethics and our actions. We aim to deliver high performance outcomes and undertake to deliver on our commitments to our colleagues, business and social partners, and our investors.

The new mission, vision and values statement was approved for implementation by the group Executive Committee in June 2008. The group’s undertakings or business principles in respect of ethics and governance may be found on the company website.

For further information on the development and implementation of these values, see the case study: Renewing our commitment to doing things the right way.
