ISO 14001 (2015) Certification

Safety and environmental audit at Koffiefontein

Having retained both ISO and OHSAS certifications, Koffiefontein was then audited externally by BSI for ISO 14001:2004 and the transition to ISO 14001:2015 as well as the OHSAS 18001:2007 in November 2017, and it was found that the operation was ready to transition to the new ISO standard.

Koffiefontein was the first mine within the Group’s portfolio to be certified on ISO 14001:2015, which is indicative of the strong work of the environmental team, and the other South African operations followed shortly after.

The standard is an environmental management system to help organisations:

  • minimise how their operations (processes, etc.) negatively affect the environment;
  • comply with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally oriented
    requirements; and
  • continually improve the above.

Certification gives the Company a competitive advantage and the trust of  stakeholders as they are ensured of an organisation that processes in a manner that is safe and sustainable.
