Working with communities


We strive to create a better future through and beyond the bounds of our core business. Our approach to Communities and Corporate Social Responsibility is to secure and maintain lasting relationships with those communities affected by our operations and activities. We want to be a trusted partner to all affected communities throughout the life cycle of our operations.

Fundamental to this approach is the shared understanding of the impacts and benefits our business brings. Using our local knowledge, we engage with communities and develop programmes that reflect mutually agreed priorities.

We support community programs focusing on Health, Education, Livelihoods Development, Infrastructure and Environment.
