In order to minimise the environmental impact to the area, Exxaro have had to re-consider their original design, which has resulted in a staggering 98% reduction in their footprint.
how exxaro powers better lives
With its purpose of Powering Better Lives, Exxaro demonstrates its commitment to South Africa’s sustainable future across the spectrum of its operations, in the way it thinks about and plans for tomorrow and through its vision as an energy company that goes beyond the scope of mining.
One such example is The Belfast Implementation Project: a greenfield coal mining project where technology is being used to plan and manage both the construction and operation of the mine, as well as most importantly, the safety of the people who work there.
From integrated environmental considerations to improved livelihoods and enthusiastic relocation of communities; as well as local economic development through procurement opportunities and support for emerging entrepreneurs like Vusumuzi Mahlangu, Exxaro’s Belfast mine tells a story of a company that understands the true importance of a social licence to operate and demonstrates what this looks like in practice.
