/PRNewswire/ --
Anglo American has been presented with the International Association for
Impact Assessment's (IAIA)
2012 Corporate Initiative Award
, at the annual IAIA
conference in
Porto, Portugal
. The inaugural award recognises Anglo
American's Socio-Economic Assessment Toolbox (SEAT), for its contribution to
responsible practice in community engagement and development.
Stephen Lintner, IAIA president, commented: "The IAIA Board of Directors
selected SEAT as the recipient of this new award because we believe Anglo
American has made a unique attempt to incorporate impact assessment into
the way it manages its operations on a day-to-day basis. We also wanted to
recognise the fact that Anglo American is sharing its knowledge and experience
in impact assessment by making SEAT available to the public."
Launched by Anglo American in 2003, SEAT empowers managers across its
operations to build constructive, candid and transparent engagement with
stakeholders; to better understand individual stakeholder needs; and then
respond to these in a way that delivers greater social and economic benefit to
communities over the long term.
Jon Samuel, Head of Social Performance at Anglo American, commented: "We
are delighted that SEAT has been recognised by the IAIA. We know that
modern, responsible mining can bring great opportunity for economic and
social progress, but there are many challenges to making this a reality. We
need to better understand our own impacts on communities so that we can
create the best possible social and economic benefits for communities for
stakeholders in the countries in which we operate."
"We believe we need to be more transparent and accountable in the way that
we do business. And we hope that by sharing the tool with the public we can
help other companies draw on our own experience in sustainable development,
and encourage an open dialogue on what are often complex issues," Mr
Samuel added.
