Corporate citizenship

Companies, like private citizens, have rights and responsibilities, with the generation of wealth being only one measure of success. To an ever-increasing degree, stakeholders expect businesses to act as social, economic and environmental forces for good.

As a leading Group of companies that provide specialty products and services to customers mainly in the mining and manufacturing sectors, AECI is committed to making a positive contribution to the lives of individuals and communities in South Africa. The focus is on how the Group relates to external stakeholders, the marketplace, government and society as a whole; how it measures and manages performance in matters relating to safety, health and environmental impacts; and how it meets its obligations to help all citizens become meaningful participants in the country’s economy, in particular the advancement of its employees from previously disadvantaged groups. Such matters are overseen by the corporate citizenship committee on behalf of the Board, in terms of clear guidelines.
