Building resilient communities
To be productive, safe, responsible and sustainable, our operations must live alongside thriving communities.
They are the places our people call home, our closest neighbours, and stewards of the land entrusted to us for a period of time. So we work together with local government, community leaders, and NGOs to contribute to community needs: from housing and infrastructure to healthcare, education and recreation.
That’s why in our FutureSmart MiningTM Sustainability Strategy, one of the three main pillars is to support thriving communities – alongside being a trusted corporate leader and to maintain a healthy environment.
And under the thriving communities pillar, we have set a stretch goals to 2030, including to:
- Create five jobs off-site for every job on-site in the communities in which we operate
- Help targeted schools in host communities perform along the top 20% of state schools
