Social and Cultural Impact on Communities

social and cultural impacts

We understand our operations can impact the social and cultural wellbeing of the communities where we are active.

For this reason, we endeavour to understand and minimise any negative impacts and enhance positive impacts through meaningful engagement.  

In 2018, we completed environment and social impact assessments in Senegal and Myanmar and commenced an assessment for our Burrup Hub developments, which will inform our future activities.

We make significant efforts to monitor and manage our environmental impacts on cultural heritage, including rock art and, in 2018, we continued to make positive progress against our 2016–2020 Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan, with particular improvements in Indigenous business participation.
