​​Debswana Sustainability

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"Sustainability is the primary moral and economic imperative for the 21st century" ​Mervyn King in the preface to the King III report on Corporate Governance

Managing a sustainable business means keeping the future in mind at all times. It is about improving our own performance while not losing sight of the needs of our stakeholders. Sustainability is about having an integrated business strategy. ​

Our commitment to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner is at the heart of Debswana’s business strategy. We believe that this approach creates a competitive advantage for our company and social and economic value for Botswana.

 Our People

Although mining is a very technical and machine-driven undertaking, Debswana remains, at heart, a people-based operation. That's why the company places great value in its work on the development, wellness, and safety of its personnel.

Pension Fund​

Since its inception in October 1984 Debswana Pension Fund has seen its membership grow to around 9 000.


In line with Debswana's efforts to promote the good wellbeing of its employees, various events are held every year in the name of raising funds for communities around the mines. ​
