We’re focused on being a friendly, responsible neighbour and sharing the benefits of our projects with the communities in which we operate.
Our operations provide benefits across every level of the community – via our employees, suppliers and contractors. And we also make significant contributions through royalties and taxes.
We proudly support a policy of hiring a local workers rather than hiring from outside a region. And we maintain collaborative relationships with the wider community.
For example, at the Takitimu mine in Southland, we’ve established a successful relationship with the local community development association. We have regular interaction with neighbours, local residents and regional businesses to anticipate any issues that arise.
Our community sponsorships and donations includes the following:
- West Coast Plunket
- Buller High School scholarship to help fund university studies
- Sponsorship of the Mount Linton Muster mountain bike race in Southland
- Sponsorship of Ohai Nightcaps Junior Rugby Club, and
- Support for the Southern Lakes Rescue Helicopter Service.
