Indigenous

 

We recognise and value the importance of Aboriginal communities to our society and culture. Furthermore, we believe that our project can only progress through sustainable and positive relations with surrounding Aboriginal communities and a spirit of mutual cooperation. Our company has an Indigenous Respect Strategy, as follows:

We will work closely with MPS Law Co. as the representative for the Widi Mob community, and the Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation as the representative of other and Aboriginal groups and communities.


We recognise the importance of Aboriginal communities and their contribution to society.


We recognise the strong cultural ties between Aboriginal people and the land and sea.


We will build trust between our firm and Aboriginal communities by aligning our promises with actions.


We will consult the appropriate individuals for proper communication with Aboriginal people.


We will support local Aboriginal communities by creating employment opportunities and development.


We will prevent unplanned disturbance of Indigenous heritage sites.


We will deliver our commitments made to Aboriginal communities and Aboriginal people.


We will act with responsibility, transparency and fairness.


We will align our production strategies for the benefit of Aboriginal communities affected by our projects.


We will encourage our stakeholders to work with Aboriginal communities and work towards benefiting Aboriginal people whenever possible.


By taking these actions, acting on our commitments, and conducting our communications with respect and cooperation, we believe our projects can greatly benefit Aboriginal communities and people.
