Socio-economic Development

Our positive impact leads to sustainable growth

At Ndalamo we are deeply committed to improving the socio-economic well-being of the communities in which we operate. It is our mission to make a positive impact, which is why we actively seek out opportunities to make a meaningful difference.

In 2022, over R47.7 million was spent on Supplier Development (44%), Socio-economic Development (18%), Enterprise Development (20%) and Skills Development (18%). Of the R47.7 million, NCC spent 48%, NBC spent 31% and Ubuntu spent 21%. Ubuntu, NCC and NBC participate in several social, enterprise and development programmes across Mpumalanga.

Some of our community initiatives include:

At NBC, 30 four-bedroom houses were built for the community, and a handover ceremony took place on February 11, 2022, attended by the executive mayor, members of the mayoral committee, and representatives from the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) as well as the Department of Agriculture, Rural Development and Land Reform (DARRLD). Sewer systems, roads, and other necessary infrastructure was constructed by NBC alongside this housing project.

At Ndalamo community upliftment initiatives and Corporate Social Responsibility are cornerstone to our culture.

We are proud of the positive impact we have made on the lives of people around us by supporting various corporate social investment (CSI) programmes that aim to benefit our surrounding communities. We provide support for skills training programmes, internships, learnerships, and fund higher education.

Furthermore, we assist in constructing further education facilities for the local community and regularly make donations to local community schools.

Preferential procurement, enterprise and supplier development

  • At Ndalamo we endeavour to always “buy local”.
  • Being committed to the growth of Historically Disadvantaged South Africans (HDSA) suppliers and by undertaking to maximise the value of cost-effective and reliable procurement of capital goods, consumables and services from companies owned, managed, and controlled by HDSAs in host communities.
  • Offering opportunities to the potential entrepreneur by creating Enterprise Development opportunities for novices, through funding of projects, providing mentoring and coaching, and by offering supplier development opportunities to existing SMMEs. Most of the ED and SED suppliers are awarded contracts to operate on our mines.
  • Committing to procurement spend on local black-owned suppliers exceeding 30% annually, including mining contractors, operational contractors and logistics services.
  • Actively supporting projects and corporate social investment (CSI) programmes which positively impact our communities.
