Corporate Social Responsibility
At Kromount Technologies we believe in going beyond mere Corporate Social Responsibility tokenism in engaging and supporting the communities where our mines are situated. We believe in leaving a lasting, positive legacy everywhere we work. We invest in cumulative sustainable development gains for our community stakeholders. Sustainability in mining can be a complicated and controversial subject, yet Kromount Technologies remains committed to mining responsibly and to transparency about our environmental impact. We are fully compliant with Environmental Agency requirements and hold Environmental Impact Assessments certification for all our operations.
We care for our employees, respect and care for the environment when we explore, build and operate, and repurpose or rehabilitate the land as far as is practicable when our operations come to an end
Zimbabwe’s Vision 2030 employs the tenets of the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We join in the efforts to work towards a sustainable future for our nation.
No business can have sustainable, meaningful impact on its own, as such, partnership is a core enabler of our sustainability strategy. Our sustainable development projects are run and overseen by our subsidiary ‘Truth’. We are pleased to have Triumph Africa as our NGO implementation partner on a 3year rolling grant. Triumph Africa is a charity that focuses their support to vulnerable older people in the communities where our mines are located. Through their work we invest in the health and well being of vulnerable older people via community outreach and food distribution programmes.
Our main activities at Truth include tackling unemployment by engaging and empowering youth through mining sector focused training and equipping them with employability skills.
Truth piloted it’s cattle dipping initiative in 2020 in an effort to help combat the widespread January disease outbreak in the country. Loss of livestock often spells the loss of income and livelihoods for smallholder farmers in rural communities.
