Spotlight: Meet Jon Samuel, Group Head of Government and Social Affairs, Anglo American plc

This week Yvette Torres- Rahman, Partnerships Director at Business Fights Poverty, interviews Jon Samuel, Group Head of Government and Social Affairs at Anglo American.

 

The recent launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), at the UN General Assembly, will set the development agenda until 2030.

 

Hear from Jon what he thinks the rational is for business to get involved in the SDGs and why every business should be able to find at least one goal that they can identify with.  

 

Against this backdrop, he speaks about the role of the mining sector and how the enterprise development programmes Anglo American has been running for 27 years are going to contribute towards achieving the SDGs.

 

Local government are also a key player in the provision of services to staff, suppliers and the local community generally.  Click to listen to the podcast and hear more from Jon about why Anglo American has focused on building local capacity.
