JSE- and NYSE-listed Gold Fields has again been ranked the top South African mining company in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
It was ranked fourth among 75 global mining companies and second among gold mining companies.
Canada’s Teck Resources was the metals and mining industry leader based on its score of 90.
Gold Fields’ score was 80, more than double the industry average of 39.
The company has consistently achieved a Top 5 metals and mining ranking in the DJSI since it started participating in 2011.
"Our continued strong showing on the DJSI illustrates that we have fully integrated environment, social and governance practices into our business.
"This is critical because we are no longer only assessed on our operational and financial performance, but that we are doing so responsibly and to the benefit of all our stakeholders,” says Gold Fields CEO Nick Holland.
