Anglo American

Anglo American

 
Anglo American is a leading global mining company and our products are the essential ingredients in almost every aspect of modern life. Our portfolio of world-class competitive operations, development projects and undeveloped resources, provides many of the metals and minerals that enable a cleaner, greener, more sustainable world and that meet the fast growing consumer-driven demands of developed and maturing economies. 

With our people at the heart of our business, we use innovative practices and the latest technologies to mine, process, move and market our products to our customers – and to discover new resources – safely and sustainably.

As a responsible producer of diamonds (through De Beers), copper, platinum group metals, the steelmaking ingredients of iron ore and metallurgical coal, and nickel – with crop nutrients in development and thermal coal operations planned for divestment – we are committed to being carbon neutral across our operations by 2040. We work together with our business partners and diverse stakeholders to unlock sustainable value from precious natural resources for the benefit of the communities and countries in which we operate, for society as a whole, and for our shareholders. Anglo American is re-imagining mining to improve people’s lives.

Nuestra competitiva cartera de operaciones de clase mundial, proyectos de crecimiento y recursos por desarrollar, proporcionan muchos de los metales y minerales que posibilitan un mundo más limpio, ecológico y sustentable, y satisfacen las crecientes demandas de consumo de las economías desarrolladas y en desarrollo. 

Con nuestra gente en el corazón de nuestro negocio, aplicamos prácticas innovadoras y las más recientes tecnologías para extraer, procesar, transportar y comercializar nuestros productos a nuestros clientes, y para descubrir nuevos recursos, de manera segura y sustentable.

Como un productor responsable de diamantes (por intermedio de De Beers), cobre, metales del grupo del platino, mineral de hierro y carbón metalúrgico, que son los ingredientes para la producción de acero, y níquel, – con fertilizantes en desarrollo y las operaciones de carbón térmico en proceso de desinversión – estamos comprometidos con ser carbono neutral en 2040. Trabajamos junto a nuestros socios de negocios y diversos grupos de interés para liberar el valor sustentable de esos recursos para beneficio de las comunidades y los países donde operamos, para la sociedad en general y para nuestros accionistas.
