Engagement with the EITI
Peru and Ghana are the only two EITI implementing country where Gold Fields has operations. The company has publicly disclosed its payments in accordance with the EITI Standard. Gold Fields Ghana is a member of the multi-stakeholder group (MSG) and a member of the Ghana Chamber of Mines (GCM). The company has been directly involved in the EITI implementation process in the country and participates in different activities organised by the Ghana Extractives Industry Transparency Initiative (GHEITI). Gold Fields La Cima, in Peru, also supports the implementation of the EITI Standard and participates in the multi-stakeholder group meeting.
Gold Fields has developed a comprehensive set of internal standards and principles that underpin how it does business. Its Code of Conduct is aligned with national and international business ethics and anti-corruption standards, including the UN Convention against Corruption (2003), the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (1997) and supporting the principles and implementation efforts of the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI).
