CEO Jonathan Molapo says that maintaining Level 1 status was highly significant for the company as “it demonstrates that we’re continuing to play our part in the sustainable transformation of the economy”.

Astron Energy’s shareholders Glencore and OTS56 enable the company to have a percentage of black ownership in excess of the target in the Generic Codes and there are several other important measures which, Molapo says, “demonstrate that we have gone way beyond mere compliance and are making a positive, transformational impact in the communities in which we work”.
