Anglo American plc (Anglo) has made its Socio-Economic Assessment Toolbox (SEAT) freely available as a contribution to managing the socio-economic impacts of extractive, other natural resource and industrial operations. The Anglo American Socio-Economic Assessment Toolbox (SEAT) is intended to help operations to benchmark and improve the management of their local social and economic impacts. The SEAT process enables operations to take a more strategic view of their interactions in relation to, for example, local employment; reducing the exclusion of disadvantaged groups; training; procurement and community social investment.
