2020 AAMEG AFRICA AWARDS

 

AAMEG’s Africa Awards are back. Australia’s only forum to recognise those explorers, miners and industry service organisations that champion a transparent, equitable and mutually beneficial mineral resources industry in Africa.

The AAMEG Africa Awards present an opportunity to celebrate visionary approaches to ESG which deliver long term benefits for communities—vastly improving their outcomes across employment, health, education and environmental conservation.

AAMEG welcomes nominations from the junior end of the scale, right through to large multinationals who aspire to enable the local communities surrounding their operations to be engaged meaningfully to reach their full potential, as well as contribute more broadly to the host country’s socio-economic development and sustainable growth.

In 2020, and in line with AAMEG’s efforts to bolster the capacity of junior companies in Africa, the AAMEG Africa Awards have expanded to include a new category that is designed to include junior explorers or service companies (with a market capitalisation below $100,000,000 and less than 25 employees).

The three categories are as follows:

 

Best Innovation in Corporate Social Development

 

This award recognises an outstanding company initiative that delivers sustainable and tangible benefits to a community while demonstrating leadership in environmental, social and governance practices. The recipient will have demonstrated that they have gone beyond traditional CSR and ESG efforts, showing collaboration and engagement between the African community and government.
