We develop constructive relationships with the national, regional and local governments of our host countries, and maintain regular dialogue with them. We may do this individually, collectively with other organisations, or as part of an industry association. Regular contact allows us to plan for regulatory changes and better react to them.
We foster public dialogue and contribute to the development of sound laws and regulations in areas that affect our business. In all dealings with governments, we work to the highest ethical standards.
We engage with regulators at all levels of government through regular meetings, audits and site visits. In 2016, our operations engaged with regulators on topics that included mine expansion permits, site-specific environmental regulations and demonstrating compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
