Project Overview

We continually strive to manage our water use so as not to compete with other users for the same water resource, and to maintain the environmental reserve. Our approach aims to prevent material impacts on the environment, downstream ecosystems and food security. As part of our commitment to reducing our water demands, a key feature of our water strategy is our pursuit of zero consumption of potable water in process operations, excluding our domestic use demand.

We continually strive to manage our water use so as not to compete with other users for the same water resource, and to maintain the environmental reserve. Our approach aims to prevent material impacts on the environment, downstream ecosystems and food security. As part of our commitment to reducing our water demands, a key feature of our water strategy is our pursuit of zero consumption of potable water in process operations, excluding our domestic use demand. As part of our water-supply strategy, we have designed water-supply scenarios for the next 20 years based on the latest production predictions. To ensure the long-term security of water availability for our operations and surrounding communities, we have also developed a bulk-water strategy and infrastructure plan, to protect, manage and maintain the water supply. Anglo American Platinum infrastructure and operational personnel are engaging with the various municipalities offering a range of financial support and technical expertise to optimise water supply management. These have ranged from studies to identify additional water sources at Thabazimbi to meter installation and water supply optimisation at Rustenburg. The Amandelbult complex invested in a mobile wastewater treatment plant, water-purification plant, a waste-disposal unit and water tanker to bring clean water to the community. The cost estimates were derived from direct capital expenditure (invoices).
