THIS IS GOLD FIELDS Stakeholder engagement
Direct engagement, including organised dialogues, roundtable discussions, one-on-one meetings, internal surveys and regular engagement with local communities at each operation and project
Indirect engagement, including the use of external benchmarks and standards that are designed to reflect and address societal expectations
At an operational level, all our mines identify, prioritise and directly engage stakeholder groups that have the potential to affect their operational, sustainability or financial performance.
At a strategic level, our corporate and regional management teams implement an ongoing programme of direct and indirect engagement.
Relevant outcomes from our operational and strategic stakeholder engagement are logged and communicated through our Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) process – and so form a vital part of the Group’s risk management programme.
