We seek genuine partnerships with local communities, suppliers, and all levels of government. First Nations Peoples, local land-connected peoples, and our host communities expect sustainable partnerships based on respect, trust and transparency.

Shared value for communities and OZ Minerals can be delivered by engaging, collaborating, understanding our impact, maximising opportunities and minimising potential negative effects. 

Our Global Social Performance Standards set out levels of stakeholder engagement and social performance expected of our workforce including employees, directors, officers, contractors, consultants, and anyone working on behalf of OZ Minerals. These Standards are guided by the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and align with the United Nations frameworks for human rights including the:

  • UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights
  • UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
  • UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

We recognise the importance of ‘Free, Prior and Informed Consent’ (FPIC) when it comes to negotiating with the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we operate. Find out more about our Free, Prior and Informed Consent processes.
