Information about the above
We focus on creating entrepreneurship opportunities for groups of people and suppliers who were previously excluded from participating in the mainstream economy. In one of our landmark enterprise development contributions, we have successfully worked with former machine shop workers to ensure that retrenched employees are in jobs and are empowered to have shares in a start-up business that is also a supplier to us.
In addition, we continue to support the Engineering Partners Group (EPG) machine shop initiative which was loaned 32 industrial machines, interest-free, in September 2014. EPG supplies machining services and components required by our company. We also support a roof bolter initiative, giving an emerging miner discount opportunities on a roof bolter, thus enabling their entry into the market.
