Recognition of our work

We’re incredibly proud to be recognised for the work we do at the forefront of the industry for our gender diversity initiatives and for the work we do respecting the environment.

Some of our recent achievements

  • We are the only gold mining company to receive the WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation for seven consecutive years. This citation commenced in 2014 and is a leading practice recognition program that aims to encourage, recognise and promote active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces.
  • We are also one of only 10 Australian-listed companies, within a total of 380 companies across 11 sectors worldwide, to be included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index (GEI). The Bloomberg GEI aims to track the performance of public companies committed to transparency in gender-data reporting. Companies are only included in the index if they meet the universal criteria and receive a GEI Score above a globally-established threshold, which is reviewed and updated annually.
  • We were named runner up as a ‘Gender Diversity Leader’ in the 2019 Mining Journal Awards.
  • Rated as ‘Leading’ in the materials sector for Environmental Social Governance (ESG) reporting by the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) in 2020.
  • Rated in the 2nd quintile in Macquarie’s 2019 Environmental Social Governance (ESG) Ratings Survey.
