We remain mindful of our business operations’ direct and indirect impacts on our host and neighboring communities. At various stages of development and in the course of our operations, our site facilities may have varying levels of impact on them.
Guided by our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy, we strive to enhance the positive effects for ur host communities. We believe that our presence helps catalyze our host communities towards positive and roductive action. Ultimately, our strategic CSR programs aim to empower our different stakeholders nd partner communities towards becoming proactive and self-reliant agents of their development to break he cycle of poverty and dependence. Our social development initiatives are guided by local CSR egulations, international standards, and best practices in community engagement.
We monitor and measure our impacts based on project objectives, quantitative targets, and simple ost-benefit analysis. We also monitor and evaluate our initiatives through the bi-annual social cceptability survey and other stakeholder feedback tools.
Guided by a strategic framework, our approach to social responsibility supports our business growth and profitability, the continued protection and sustainability of the environment and its natural resources, nd the long-term improvement of all our host communities’ quality of life.
