It’s our goal to exceed baseline regulatory requirements for community engagement. We will:
We will engage with communities early and often, so that we understand and respond to their interests and concerns.
Be flexible and inclusive.
We will offer a range of engagement opportunities that are tailored to the variety of needs and preferences of the communities in which we operate.
We will act honestly and ethically in all our dealings with the communities in which we operate.
Support our employees and contractors to engage well.
We will provide tools, peer support and training to enable our staff to deliver on our commitment.
Continuously improve our engagement.
We will evaluate the effectiveness of our engagement and modify it as needed to ensure that our activities address community needs and expectations.
Our Community Engagement Policy has been informed through internal and external consultation, industry best practice, including the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) Quality Assurance Standard (2015) and the Accountability AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard (2011).
