Our strategy

DRDGOLD is rolling back the environmental legacy of mining through strategic focus points that are aligned to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which we influence directly, and the Responsible Gold Mining Principles (RGMPs) by the World Gold Council (WGC).

Based on this, DRDGOLD has identified the following eight United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which are aligned to our core purpose as a business and our overall strategy:


  • No poverty [icon]
  • Quality education [icon]
  • Decent work and economic growth [icon]
  • Biodiversity, land use and mine closure [icon]
  • Sustainable cities and communities [icon]
  • Responsible consumption and production [icon]
  • Climate action [icon]
  • Partnerships for the goals [icon]
aligned to our purpose, vision and strategy

We seek to achieve the eight United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by using integrated thinking to make our decisions to deploy resources and capital as we create value for all our stakeholders in the short, medium and longer term.

DRDGOLD has also prioritised the following strategic focus areas:
  • Growing the business by replicating our business model, and looking at PGMs and battery metals
  • Optimally, profitably and sustainably mining our large surface gold resource
  • Using technology and information to enhance operational performance and to minimise the impact on the environment
  • Create a value driven culture of employee safety, empowerment, diversity, inclusivity and the desire to succeed
  • Improving quality of life of communities surrounding operations
