Tom McCulley. CEO of Anglo American Peru since September 2018. He has more than 25 years of experience in key positions at various projects, such as large-scale greenfield projects at Newmont, Fluor and Anglo American, having joined the company in 2015.
With its aim to reimagine mining to improve people's lives, Anglo American brings together in its FutureSmart Mining innovation strategy a sustainable mining model: technologies that reduce water and energy consumption as well as risks at work, and digital tools to tackle uncertainty in the different business processes.
Following this strategy, Quellaveco will be a smart mine in which production data, safety reports and autonomous processes will be controlled in real time. State-of-the-art technology will be used to ensure the protection of the environment. At the same time, the company will continue to strengthen its alliances, in collaboration with authorities and communities, with the aim of creating prosperous communities and building trust as a corporate leader.
Using renewable energy, Anglo American aims to make all of its operations carbon-neutral by 2040. As in Chile and Brazil, its other operations in South America, in Quellaveco, renewable energies – mainly wind – will be used to supply the production processes.
Anglo American was founded in South Africa in 1917. Today its corporate headquarters are in London, UK.
The start of construction at Quellaveco was announced in July 2018, but Anglo American's presence in the country dates back to 1992, with the privatization of the project and the award of the tender. The concession contract was signed in February 1993.
