Best-practice water management
Implats holds an “A” performance score for its 2020 CDP Water Disclosure Project submission – one of only 106 companies globally to have made the CDP’s 2020 water security A-list. The A-rating, the second consecutive year Implats has achieved this score, places us in the leadership band with a select group of companies for achieving best practice in their 2020 disclosure, awareness and management of water security risk.
Improving community access to potable water
Access to clean water and sanitation are basic necessities and are imperative in curbing the spread of Covid-19. Accessing adequate water supply is a challenge in many of the communities around our South African and Zimbabwean operations.
Assuring our ethical production processes
Implats is committed to being a reputable and responsible PGM producer through ethical production processes. During FY2020 we started implementing a Group platinum and palladium sourcing policy across our operations. We engaged PwC to assist with assessing our current practices and policies against the 2019 requirements of the London Platinum and Palladium Markets’ (LPPM) Responsible Platinum and Palladium Guidance, and where necessary made improvements.
