We are committed to interacting with indigenous peoples, respecting their values, culture and traditions.
We recognise that consultation is a fundamental right of indigenous communities and a mechanism for building trust. Consultation allows us to understand their perspectives on our projects and address their concerns. Prior to consulting, we assess potential impacts and benefits of our projects and develop the capacities of the communities to fully exercise their right to consultation. To consult, we consider their preferred method of engagement, present information in a culturally appropriate manner and reach agreements on shared benefits. Good faith, transparency and accountability are the key values that guide our consultation approach.
