Our Approach

Over a Decade of Excellence

Listed on the JSE Top 40 Index and the Socially Responsible Investment Index, we are proud to be an organisation that is recognised for its innovation, ethics and integrity.

Coal is the core commodity of our business, with assets including Grootegeluk – the only coal-producing mine in the Waterberg region and one of the largest integrated mining and beneficiation operations, globally. However, we understand the importance of fossil fuel opportunities and changing global imperatives, and are determined to adapt and redefine our strategic direction as we enter a new decade to 2030.

To live up to our promise of serving all our stakeholders – shareholders, employees, communities, partners, and society at large – we will also continue to work together to drive sustainable development and value creation.

Over a Decade of Excellence

Our Vision:

To produce resources that Power a Clean World. Powering Better Lives in Africa and Beyond is our purpose.

This is what drives our ambition to provide resources (beyond just commodities) that are critical in a low-carbon world.

Our Sustainable Growth and Impact strategy enables us to deliver on this vision and our success lies in the strength of organisations’ our culture and values. Through our strategy, we aim to transform Exxaro in a systematic and integrated manner into a diversified company that will transition from a coal base to a minerals and renewable energy solutions business that will thrive in a low-carbon future.

Guided by our purpose to Power Better Lives in Africa and Beyond, we understand that we cannot grow sustainably without deliberately creating a positive impact in the environment and communities we serve. We remain committed to responsibly maximising the value of our coal assets whilst we play an active role in creating a future which enables our vision – “Resources Powering a Cleaner World.”

Our Business


Strong leadership is crucial for our continued commitment to sustainable value creation. Exxaro is led by a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee. The Board is responsible for deciding and supervising the activities (strategic and operational) and performance of Exxaro, while balancing the company's interests as a responsible corporate citizen with the legitimate needs and expectations of stakeholders.

Within a constantly changing business environment, board members and executive management have a critical role to create value for the business and society. This requires the board and executive management to examine the company’s impact on society and how it could make a positive difference in the communities where Exxaro operates by embedding societal values deep into our core purpose, strategy, and everyday decision-making. Our group’s corporate governance framework, structure and processes further strengthen this, overseeing sustainability matters, including reporting and accountability.
