Anglo Asian gives its corporate responsibilities a very high priority and is mindful that it is operating in the extractive industries in a developing country. There are three keys pillars to the Company’s corporate responsibility activities, Corporate Governance; Health, safety and environment and social responsibility
Corporate Governance – The Company is listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (“AIM”). It is required by the rules of AIM to follow a recognised code of corporate governance and report its compliance with that code. The Company has adopted the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code which it believes is the most appropriate code.
Health, safety and environment (“HSE”) – The health and safety of our employees and the protection of the environment in and around our mining properties are a prime concern for the Company’s board and senior management team. An overall strategy for HSE is overseen by a HSE committee chaired by a board director and there is a fully qualified HSE department at Gedabek.
Social responsibility – The Company is fully committed to developing a truly sustainable mining operation in Azerbaijan. The Company also contributes to the economic and social development of the local communities.
