As outlined in our sustainability policy, it is our objective to ensure that the communities in which we operate receive real benefit from our activities and we strive to build trusting relationships by engaging clearly, openly and honestly with our host communities and other key stakeholders.
At Prominent Hill, we have a community relations team that works directly with communities impacted by our activities. Their role is to respond quickly and appropriately to concerns or grievances and keep communities informed regarding any planned changes to our activities.
In conjunction with the operation’s management and other key stakeholders, community relations personnel coordinate activities associated with social impact assessment and monitoring, cultural heritage, compensation and community investment programs. Engagement with communities impacted by OZ Minerals’ exploration activities is supported by operational community relations personnel and the Group office.
