Implats Platinum uses the Chief Executive Officer's review to highlight the importance of sustainability to the business and to identify the material sustainability issues which the business has identified as part of the risk process.
For each material sustainability issue, Implats Platinum discusses why the issue is considered to be material and the actions which the business has taken to mitigate this risk and to enhance company performance. The discussion is rounded off with a conclusion which demonstrates the company's long-term focus as it states, 'an optimal solution will not be achieved by focusing solely on short-term gains. Mining requires taking a long-term view as building a successful industry involves the investment of significant capital over time'.
