Our Indigenous Partners

Our indigenous partners

Indigenous Peoples often have profound and cultural connections to their lands and waters. This can be tied to their physical, spiritual, cultural and economic well-being.

We operate in remote regions; some with a significant population of Indigenous Peoples. Due to their special relationship with the land and long history of marginalization, we recognize that additional consideration should be given to our engagement with Indigenous stakeholders to ensure the full respect of their rights.

Considering the values, needs and concerns of Indigenous Peoples in site activities is therefore fundamental to our partnership approach and the way we do business. Doing so can support the development of long term, mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous Peoples that are affected by our activities. Partnerships with Indigenous Peoples can contribute to more sustainable land management and a stable operating environment.

Details of our management approach can be found in our Human Rights Approach and in our Human Rights Report
