The real value of every drop of water

Water is scarce. And as a business that is highly reliant on this resource, Anglo American wants to be a responsible water steward, protect water quality and support access rights of other users. We also want to play a leadership role in our water catchment through engagement, partnerships and innovation.

Addressing the water challenge requires a long-term view and Anglo American is conscious of the need to consider and work with other water users – from other industries to the communities around us.

Our work in the eMalahleni area, located in the north-east of South Africa, demonstrates how we've worked with partners to build a world-leading water treatment plant that has benefitted the community surrounding it.
