Environmental and Social Impact Assessments
We conduct environmental and social impact assessments (ESIAs) for all new projects or when changes are made to our operational footprint that may require an amendment to the existing ESIA. As a minimum these are aligned with prevailing legislation in the country in which the project or operation is located. However our overriding ethos is to go beyond compliance. For each new project we engage with community members to understand their concerns and needs, many of which are related to environmental impact. Our community engagement practices are guided by our community engagement handbook and our group community and stakeholder engagment guideline, based on best international practices.
