Due to the evolving times, we have established ways to incorporate our Corporate Social Responsibility as an integrated initiative into both our existing and pre-planned mining projects with all our various clients. As a core contractor, our responsibilities will never be of the same magnitude compared to the typical mining houses, however, our participation is visible and as a proudly Level 2 B-BBEE contributor, it can be measured and accounted for.
Through partnerships with relevant “local/doorstep” stakeholders, we are able to develop SMMEs and communities on the following aspects:
Socio-Economic Development which includes education, health, basic needs, community projects, etc.
Supplier Development by mainly identifying suitable local suppliers and SMMEs and providing them with mentorship and operational assistance for them to provide quality work on a sustainable basis, taking cognizance of Zizwe’s various “fit-for-purpose” SMME development models i.e., joint ventures, “carve out” and set-aside projects, sub-contracting, equipment transfer projects, etc.
Our Enterprise Development strategy aims to establish transferable skills and sustainable enterprises to support the local economy, even beyond the life of mine within the relevant local communities.
