Exxaro Resources Limited (Exxaro) is among the top five coal producers in South Africa. The group is listed on JSE Limited (JSE) Top 40 Index and among the top 30 in the FTSE/JSE Socially Responsible Investment Index. Exxaro is more than a mining business: we strongly believe in making a positive impact in the world.
Our purpose: Powering Better Lives in Africa and Beyond. As one of the largest and foremost black-empowered mining companies in the country, Exxaro is an industry leader with regards to transformation and as such diversity and inclusion is a key principle in all Exxaro’s business strategies both within and outside the organisation.
A major barrier to participation in mining and resources is the physical environment which cater more for abled bodied people.
Exxaro is looking to use technology and innovation to solve this challenge to enable people living with disabilities to work within the physical mining environment and not be bound to office related employment opportunities.
Exxaro is looking for solutions to enable people living with mobility, visual and hearing impairments to part take in the physical mining environment.
