Randgold Resources is a large FTSE100 gold mining firm with several mines in West and Central Africa.

ESG Communications has worked with Randgold since 2011 when it created a three year strategy to improve its sustainability reporting.  Our initial work with the company included a gap analysis document that analysed the differences between the company's output and that considered best-in-class.

Since then we have managed the production of their GRI-compliant Sustainability Reports each year. By 2014 the company had been accepted into the highly regarded FTSE4Good sustainability index and received a commendation award from ICSA for its Sustainability Report. 

The ESG Communications team help Randgold to explain to shareholders, ratings agencies and wider stakeholders how its work n some of the most remote parts of Africa both directly and indirectly drives sustainable development creating thousands of jobs, building vital infrastructure and providing significant community development programmes. 

“Working with ESG Communications has helped to focus and improve our Sustainability Reporting. Last year, we conducted a thorough and robust materiality process and that's given us a deeper insight into our stakeholders’ concerns, and ensured our sustainability report addresses the issues that really matter.”  Charles Wells, Sustainability Director, Randgold Resources
