Operations with significant actual or potential negative impacts on local communities.
By its very nature, our work has an impact on the local community and society as a whole. Community engagement affects our social license to operate. While our impact on our surroundings immediately affects our employees and local suppliers, our community engagement improves jobs and education in our environment – contributing to society as well. This requires a constant focus on everything we do to minimise our negative impact and create value for local communities.
