Our community is a key stakeholder in our operations, and we aim to forge relationships to gain and maintain trust. We do this through authentic engagement and meaningful conversations.
Proactive engagement with our communities is our priority. We operate in the local government areas of Lake Macquarie, Lithgow and Mid-Western Region, which despite having long associations with mining and power generation, are diverse in both their natural and social environments. Through our daily business activities, stakeholders we regularly engage with include:
- policy makers and regulators
- industry groups
- non-government organisations (NGOs) and social interest groups
- financial institutions
We are committed to developing and maintaining meaningful relationships across the communities in which we operate. We recognise that our consultation and engagement, that happens in a variety of ways, must reflect the diversity of each community’s characteristics, including their values and aspirations. We also acknowledge that our community is not just located within the immediate areas of operations, but reflects a broader network of attitudes and opinions about our industry. We know that open communication and listening to our stakeholders’ concerns is of great value.
