As part of Inmet’s commitment to international best practice in corporate responsibility, we are committed to effective relationships with affected communities to maintain our social license to operate.
All our sites have formal, culturally appropriate and transparent stakeholder engagement and management strategies which include regular consultation with affected communities, disclosure of information about our activities and seek feedback regarding our performance.
In 2011 we:
- Enhanced our community consultation efforts;
- Implemented formal community feedback (grievance) management systems; and
- Increased local procurement, contracting and employment at all our operations.
Everywhere we operate, we aim to contribute to the social and economic development of the communities affected by our activities. We intend to invest in sustainable, culturally appropriate programs, designed and executed with stakeholder input and in cooperation with government, NGOs and other partners. Building literacy and ensuring the inclusion of women and girls in programming will be key priorities for our community development plans and projects.
