The mission of the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (MRE) is to regulate and transform the sector for the provision of secure, sustainable and affordable energy and the promotion and regulation of minerals and mining.

The Department’s mandate is to ensure secure and sustainable provision of energy and mineral resources for socio-economic development. The strategic objective derives from the NDP, which envisages that, by 2030, South Africa will have a mineral resources and energy sector that promotes economic growth and development, social equity and environmental sustainability.
