Newcrest has an open and constructive approach to community engagement and investment. We know that our economic and social contribution is critical to maintaining Newcrest’s licence to operate and ensuring that communities see lasting benefits from Newcrest’s operations.
Newcrest’s Communities Policy outlines the principles that guide our engagement with communities and include:
Newcrest has developed corporate Communities Standards to harmonise our approach to community relations and social objectives. The standards will ensure that individual site programs are implemented in a more consistent way across Newcrest, while continuing to draw on local knowledge and practice
Newcrest has developed community development programs at each operational site and our community relations teams are responsible for building and maintaining close relationships with the local community and relevant stakeholders.
Further information on Newcrest’s approach to community engagement can be found in the Sustainability Report.
