Top 500 Best Managed Company of the Year Award

Anglo American South Africa Limited

Anglo American is in robust form at the moment having, through astute asset management, generated a 41% rise in productivity and a 31% reduction in cost, while growing its production base by 8% and reducing debt by 38%. Impressive numbers; however, to define the spirit that underpins South Africa’s Best Managed Company, let’s let Chief Executive, Mr. Mark Cutifani – put in a word. He says:

“Today, businesses that operate sustainably are likely to prosper. For Anglo American, this means meeting our commitments to stakeholders and seeking to operate to the highest possible standards of safety, health, environmental and community development practices.”

Visit to see the many, many milestones of the last century for this giant of global mining – a forward-thinking and progressive company, and an altogether iconic brand.

Happy Birthday Anglo American, and congratulations on your award, and on your phenomenal achievements. You now lead the inner circle of the Top 500, together with our other esteemed 2017 winners, for the next year – reigning supreme at the helm of the economy – business royalty and an inspiration to the nation.
