Exxaro Mining Community Development

Our socio-economic development initiatives are funded by the Exxaro Chairman's Fund (ECF), the Exxaro Foundation (EF) and the Exxaro People Development Initiative (EPDI).

Exxaro's integrated approach to infrastructure development, education, healthcare and ESD aims to advance and strengthen communities. We understand that our success is both short term, in terms of delivery of initiatives, and long term, as determined by the legacy we leave for our communities. Our guiding principles are sustainability, stakeholder inclusiveness and collaboration.
