Our aim is to be the leading global mining company – the investment, the partner and the employer of choice – through the operational excellence of world class assets in the most attractive commodities and a resolute commitment to the highest standards of safe and sustainable mining.
A clear strategy and a strong future
Our metallurgical coal business has access to more than 100 years of coal resources, with more than five billion tonnes of hard coking coal inventory close to ports in Queensland, New South Wales and British Columbia. Our attractive multi-billion dollar project pipeline in Australia, Canada and Mozambique will create additional jobs, benefit our local communities and deliver maximum value for shareholders from the available resources.
Operational excellence, resource development and growth
We aim to deliver operational excellence through innovation; bringing about safer and more efficient ways of operating; asset optimisation, such as introducing targeted coal recovery programs; and by leveraging and further developing the skills of our high-calibre employees.
Through developing our resources, we can utilise the value-driving components of our business by increasing production of our high-quality products, while progressing our attractive project pipeline, comprising four projects: Grosvenor, Moranbah South, Drayton South and Dartbrook. This growth pipeline will secure our long-term presence in Australia, delivering employment opportunities and a significant economic contribution to the surrounding communities through local investment and royalties to state governments.
Asset optimisation built into the business plan
Asset optimisation is core to our business strategy. It enables us to deliver greater shareholder value by optimising our existing high-quality resources. It creates a platform upon which future projects can succeed. In Australia, targeted business improvement projects are built into our business plan, incorporating stretch targets for performance improvements in key value-driving components of the business.
Our people are as vital to our success as our mining assets
We are committed to our people, who determine how effectively we operate. They build our reputation with our investors and partners every day and uphold our values. Ultimately, it is our people who will realise our ambition and deliver our objective to be the leading global mining company. We have performance management plans in place with our employees to enable them to further develop their skills, build motivation so they are confident in leading, managing and delivering our growth objectives, and we reward them for their achievements.
