AngloGold Ashanti has grown rapidly over the past 12 years from its South African origins into a global gold company. To underpin this growth and to achieve our future business and growth objectives, we have developed a consistent operating framework, thereby enabling delivery on the company’s vision, mission and values.
This framework has been developed and implemented as Project ONE, guided by a steering committee chaired by the CEO. It has two major components:
- the System for People (SP), which aims to have the right person in the right role doing the right work; and
- the Business Process Framework (BPF), with the goal of having the right work done at the right time and in the right way.
Discipline frameworks map the detailed design of functional areas of work, for example safety, and are integrated into the SP and the BPF.
The sustainability strategy that is under development at AngloGold Ashanti supports and reflects the principles of Project ONE. Our objective will be to implement each element of our sustainability strategy through Project ONE, in order to ensure that it is made relevant to the business and becomes part of the way we operate.
