英美资源集团将其采矿业务划分为三个区域。它们是实际的矿区、该区附近的地区和社会经济发展区。公司遵循不同的授权和协议。在矿区，工人的健康和安全是最重要的。在矿区附近，该公司遵循有关矿区附近居民安全和健康的环境协议。人们非常重视他们从事采矿活动的社区的安全和福利。公司将技术、知识转移和能力建设作为发展的重要前驱。他们为当地社区的环境发展项目创造并做出了贡献(Dalal-Clayton, and Sadler, 2014)。在智利、南非等地，他们投资建设了当地的社区贸易和当地的商业推广。与其他部门相比，采矿作业造成了更高的环境足迹。在这种情况下，英美资源集团公司开始了一系列的行动，以确保在这个系统中有最小的环境破坏和当地社区的发展是重点。

For its mining operation, the Anglo American company divides it into three zones. They are the actual mining areas, areas near the zone and the socio-economic developmental zone. There are separate mandates and protocols that the company follow. In the mining areas, the health and safety of the workers take priority. In the areas near the zone, the company follows environmental protocols regarding safety and health of the people living near the mining areas. There is a lot of importance given to the safety and the welfare of the communities where they have embarked in mining activities. The company uses technology, knowledge transfer and building of capacity as important precursors for development.
