Building and maintaining long-lasting stakeholder relationships is at the core of how we do business.
Over the past 20 years, we have built mutually beneficial partnerships with local communities that last throughout the entire life cycle of our operations. Through ongoing collaboration with a broad range of stakeholders, we aim to build credibility with local communities and all levels of government by listening and responding to their concerns.
Our core group of stakeholders includes employees, contractors, suppliers, investors, local community members, governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and industry groups. Each stakeholder group has unique expectations, and we therefore engage with each group in ways designed to best meet their needs.
