Community Awareness and Emergency Response Committee (CAER)
One of the Responsible Care management practice standards is community interaction and to this end AEL has operated a Community Awareness and Emergency Response Committee (CAER) at Modderfontein since 1995. The committee is chaired by a member of the community and its main objective is to provide a forum where the community can interact with the factory in matters of concern and to share information.
