Chamber’s most supportive corporate
The honour was bestowed on Dundee Precious Metals, which owns and operates the Tsumeb Smelter, during the NCCI’s Annual General Meeting and Gala Dinner at the end of June.
“Recognition such as this from a time-honoured institution like the NCCI is truly gratifying,” said Hans Nolte, Vice President and General Manager of Dundee Precious Metals.
“We at Dundee continuously try to play a constructive role in society by supporting and encouraging those businesses, organisations and projects that need a hand to move to the next level of sustainability,” Nolte said.
“We care about the quality of the communities in which we operate.”
Noting that ‘Community Investment’ is one of Dundee’s corporate values, Nolte said, “Our legacy will be to ensure we have helped residents make the community a better place than before we arrived on the scene.
We have a strong corporate and social responsibility to the communities in which we invest.”
Since acquiring the Tsumeb Smelter from Weatherly Mining in 2010, Dundee has donated more than N$5 million to worthy projects and initiatives through its corporate social investment arm, known as the Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb Community Trust.
From 2011 to 2014, N$3.2 million went to educational endeavours, while N$1.1 million assisted small and medium enterprises, and another N$288,327 for social welfare projects. N$219,617 went to arts and culture.
