Community Development


Our slogan, “coal to the world, growth to the nation” fits in well with our sustainable community development initiatives. RBCT participates in a number of social and economic development initiatives aligned with the company’s overall growth strategy. 

These programmes aim to promote the development and self sufficiency of local communities within uMhlathuze Municipality, in order to contribute to the creation of an environment in which RBCT business can be conducted, with the focus on sustainability.
RBCT’s Sustainable Community Development strategy plays a constructive role in enhancing the quality of life in the communities within which we operate.
Our employees play a significant role through our SCD Committee, which consists of volunteers from all levels within the company as well as employee union representatives. 

Our focus has been in the following areas:

  • Education
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Skills Development
  • Community Welfare (including Poverty Alleviation and Crime Fighting)
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Sports Development 
  • Wellness Programmes
