We invest in the preservation and support of natural resources because we believe development and conservation can co-exist. We are particularly driven to support projects that provide sustainable solutions connected to our business, or are relevant to the areas near our operational assets. Through community investments, we prioritise environmental programs that:

  •  Support integrated solutions for water issues and biodiversity in the areas where we operate
  •  Support Indigenous land and water-based enterprise in the areas where we operate
