Glencore maintains vaccine momentum in South Africa

Glencore Operations South Africa has kicked off their vaccination rollout to staff members 50 years old and over. Glencore has managed to reach hundreds of staff members with their vaccine rollout that started at 7am at Lekgotla Hall at WCM Waterval East mine until 9pm.

As part of the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic Glencore has worked diligently alongside the government to aid the impact in communities as well as keep their staff members safe during this time. It is with great excitement that the organisation announces their vaccination rollout to staff members in the Rustenburg communities which will aid the countrywide vaccine process that is currently being rolled out by the government ensuring more numbers are reached quicker.

“For us at Glencore this is a very proud moment as we pride ourselves in driving solutions and meaningful impact in South African communities. Glencore will continue to display true commitment to the communities in which we operate in and provide sustainable solutions that will combat the issues our communities face, while building resilient communities with our various initiatives that aims to empower and create opportunities during and beyond the global pandemic. The Glencore vaccine rollout is true testament to our commitment and we will continue to pioneer change and development in and around our operations.” Japie Fullard, Glencore Ferroalloys CEO

Community and staff members of GOSA came out in numbers to receive the vaccine on Monday, which generously contributes to the progress of the country’s vaccination rollout.
