Renewal Programme 


Why trust building is important for successful stakeholder engagement.

Marikana represents a wound of deep injustice.


In 2019 Sibanye-Stillwater took over the legacy of the mine's role in the 2012 Marikana massacre, with the promise that it would never happen again. 


To help the nation heal and write a new story, the Renewal Programme is a work-in-progress conversation, showing what reimagining looks like through a business's relationship with their community.  

Over the past two years, the ReimagineSA team met regularly with community representatives, government, religious and tribal leaders. Relationship and trust building is important to the success of the programme. When people see commitment, they are more likely to do what it takes to work with others who share the same vision.

What we did:

PHASE 1 : 2020 - 2023

Honour those directly affected by the 2012 Marikana Massacre using the Letsema Process to engage openly and constructively through a series of conversations. The series of engagements has supported them in working toward reclaiming their agency.  Two years later, they have arrived at the Co-invest stage alongside various actors in the journey. 


What we are planning:

PHASE 2: 2023 - 2025

The joining of forces with communities where Sibanye-Stillwater operates, to co-create healing and socio-economic solutions that don't depend on the mining industry.
