Supporting Team Australia in Africa

Our Membership With AAMEG

Some of the key challenges associated with investing in the countries of Africa relate to governance, capacity building, human rights, social and environmental issues.

As a member of the Australia-Africa Minerals & Energy Group (AAMEG), we are proud to support the Australian mining industry’s efforts in Africa, and in our daily activities and decision making are guided by the following set of internationally recognised principles:

  • The Australian Government’s Social Responsibility in the Mining and Metals Sector in Developing Countries Handbook
  • AAMIG’s Summary of Australian Anti-Bribery and Corruption Compliance Obligations
  • OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
  • OECD Risk Awareness Tool for Multinational Enterprises in Weak Governance Zones (2006)
  • The Equator Principles (2006)
  • The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)
  • The UN Guiding principles for business and human rights (2011)
  • The Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (2000)
