Governance

Our Board of Directors are committed to effective and ethical leadership and the highest standards of good corporate governance. Our prevailing ethic, respected by each member of our leadership, is the universal golden rule of ‘do unto others as you would have done to you’.

DRDGOLD adheres to all relevant aspects of compliance, one of which is the application of the principles contained in the King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa, 2016 (King IV). The application regime for King IV is "apply and explain", requiring all Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) listed companies to substantially and meaningfully strive towards good corporate governance. King IV recognises that sound governance outcomes, exemplified by integrity, competence, responsibility, accountability, fairness and transparency, are the cardinal pillars of good corporate citizenship. See our Corporate Governance policy in our latest Annual Report.

DRDGOLD’s shares are quoted on the JSE Limited, which is its primary listing. DRDGOLD is also registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States of America and its ordinary shares are quoted on the New York Stock Exchange Limited in the form of an American Depositary Receipts Programme, administered by the Bank of New York Mellon. Accordingly, DRDGOLD is subject to compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which is documented in the company’s Form 20-F, filed annually with the SEC.

Policy development

DRDGOLD ensures that its governance standards are world-class by focusing on key risk areas when developing our ever-improving groupwide polices; increasingly aligning with international best practice and standards; and an in-house tailings performance management system that ensures the collection, processing and management of key data using drones, and radar and satellite technology.
