Aligning our business goals with the long-term interests of our stakeholders and the broader society is essential to our future success. Our business can play an important role in catalyzing the economic development and social wellbeing of host governments and communities through job creation, provisioning local goods and services, community investments, and paying taxes and royalties. We can contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by being a leader in the areas where we can have the greatest impact.
We are also committed to a strong governance structure, including multi-stakeholder engagement and transparency around payments to governments, which increases accountability, promotes trust, creates mutual value and reduces corruption.
Our Sustainability and Stakeholder Engagement Policy states our commitment to transparently communicate with stakeholders and to respect all cultures, and along with our People Policy, we commit to providing local employment and economic development opportunities and building capacity.
