Exxaro cares about local communities

To plough back to the communities where it operates, the giant coal producer, Exxaro has over the most recent five years in partnership with Limpopo Road Agency committed R350 million to improve roads in Lephalale villages.

In a statement on Wednesday, Exxaro said communities that work within, and live around, our operations are central to the purpose statement that informs Exxaro’s strategy to “power better lives”.

“In Lephalale’s rural communities, we are proud to have partnered with the local municipality and the Limpopo Roads Agency to improve roads in the area at a cost of R350 million,” Exxaro said.

Exxaro has also spent an estimated R300 million to accommodate its employees which include home ownership programme.

As a major player in South Africa’s electricity generation value chain, investment remains Exxaro’s top priority.

The company said its supplies one-third of the coal to Eskom’s Power Stations to meet the country’s energy demands.

Several expansions and new coal projects are underway in both regions where we operate.

To increase our coal export volumes, Exxaro said it has committed R6,7 billion for expansion projects.

“It’s our view to increase this expenditure by R2.8 billion to R9.5 billion when our new Thabametsi mine becomes operational to supply its Thabametsi coal IPP,” added Exxaro.

As a leader in South Africa’s mining sector–one of the key pillars of our economy in terms of foreign exchange and employment–we at Exxaro know better than most the vital role that corporate citizens play in achieving transformation in the country’s socio-economic landscape.

Our own strategy for 2026, in fact, is well-aligned with the Scenarios goals for 2030, envisaging a successful company that continues to lead the way in terms of transformation and contributing meaningfully to the development of a prosperous South African society, completely.
