Statement of Support
Engagement with the EITI
Anglo American has been an active supporter of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative both directly and as part of the International Council on Mining and Metals. It is also one of four mining companies represented on the 2019-2020 EITI Board.
Anglo American participates in multi-stakeholder groups (MSGs) in Peru and Zambia and supports EITI’s outreach efforts in Ecuador and South Africa. Anglo American sees public disclosure as a key means of building trust in the societies where the mining operations take place.
Anglo American has voluntarily provided information about its tax payments on a country-by-country basis, complying with the 2013 EU Accounting Directive since it was introduced. The company has published its 2018 data in accordance with the OECD’s country-by-country reporting guidelines. The company compiles a wider Tax and Economic Contribution Report (TECR) which includes the publication of its country by country data. The publication of Anglo American’s TECR reports can be seen here.
The company’s code of conduct outlines the expectations of what stakeholders can expect from the company and what the company expects of them. Business integrity, accountability and transparency are the company’s key core commitments. The company's code of conduct is available here.
