The Anglo American Foundation is focused on accelerating progress towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), placing a particular importance on programmes that empower women, youth and vulnerable groups in Anglo American’s host communities and countries of operation.

By partnering with non-profit, public and private organisations, the Anglo American Foundation supports health, education, economic, good governance and environmental projects aligned with the goals of Anglo American’s Sustainable Mining Plan – itself designed to align with the UNSDGs.

Duncan Wanblad, Chair of the Anglo American Foundation, said: “The Anglo American Foundation does incredible work that makes a real and lasting difference in communities around the world. This special $100 million contribution from Anglo American will help us take the scale of what we can deliver to an entirely new level, funding more ambitious and longer term projects.

“Our Foundation is aligned with the spirit of Anglo American’s purpose – to re-imagine mining to improve people’s lives. It also reflects our ethos of partnership, charitable giving and volunteering, which are deeply embedded into our company’s DNA and which have mattered like never before as we responded to the pandemic and look ahead to the recovery phase.”

Anik Michaud, Group Director of Corporate Relations and Sustainable Impact for Anglo American, and also a trustee of the Foundation said:

“Building on the exemplary work in 2020 to help safeguard the lives and livelihoods of our colleagues and those in our local communities through our global WeCare programme, we see this donation as an opportunity to accelerate the Anglo American Foundation’s work at a critical time for so many of our stakeholders, including our planet.”
