Stakeholder engagement plans at the corporate, regional and site levels ensure we deliver on our commitment to ongoing and honest dialogue and transparent, timely and fact-based communications with our stakeholders. These elements are critical to building trusting relationships based on mutual respect and managing risks present in our business. In addition, stakeholder engagement helps inform our site-level management plans and validate our priorities and salient human rights issues.

In addition to ongoing stakeholder engagement, in 2018, we surveyed more than 400 community leaders, NGOs, government officials, employees, members of the media, and other key stakeholders to deepen our understanding of Newmont’s reputation among stakeholders and develop action plans to enhance transparency and advocacy.
