Namdeb contributes approximately N$80million annually to the upliftment of the communities directly impacted by its operations in the towns Oranjemund and Lüderitz. Furthermore this amount includes bursaries, sponsorships, environment funding, and aspects related to the social improvement across Namibia.

Namdeb believes that sustainable economic development for the town of Oranjemund can be realised through the Town Transformation process.

This process entails looking how to transform Oranjemund into a model sustainable town, beyond mining. Namdeb and the Oranjemund Town Council, together with other smart partners such as the NCCI, work hand in hand through various mechanisms that will ensure a self-funding and sustainable town with a diversified economy.
