African Rainbow Minerals joins the International Council on Mining and Metals

7 September 2009


African Rainbow Minerals (ARM) has reaffirmed its commitment to responsible business practices by joining ICMM. By becoming a member, ARM has committed to comply with ICMM’s Sustainable Development Framework and position statements.

ICMM President Tony Hodge said, “ARM is a welcome addition to our membership. The Council’s decision to accept its application reflects ARM’s long-term commitment to sustainability in mining.”

ARM CEO Andre Wilkens said, “Sustainable development is more than a policy for ARM, it supports the business principles that drive short and long term strategic targets. ARM’s ‘we do it better’ management philosophy applies as much to the non-financial aspects of its business as it does to the operational and financial aspects. Having established ARM as a partner of choice for mining in Africa, ICMM membership enhances our position as a world class diversified mining company.”
