Amara in the Community (CSR)
Amara Mining is committed to working with communities in the key countries within which it operates: Burkina Faso
, Sierra Leone
and Côte d'Ivoire
. Our goal is to achieve a socially responsible business that balances economic prosperity with environmental stewardship and ethical business practice. Taking this approach allows Amara to ensure that a positive and sustainable legacy is left beyond the lives of our mining operations.
The Company's CSR mandate states that our community initiatives across West Africa have three key focuses:
- Sustainable livelihoods
We appoint community liaison officers in our work areas and hold regular meetings that give local people the chance to talk about their concerns. By initiating schemes and inviting open communication, we form strong partnerships with these communities that demonstrate our respect for their needs and requirements as well as their customs and values.
