Newmont Nusa Tenggara's (PTNNT) approach to managing business in a multicultural community on the pages of its 2010 Doing Business While Advancing Peace and Development report.

UN Global Compact Features PTNNT as Best PracticeThe Global Compact is a United Nations initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. Global Compact signatories commit to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. Newmont has been a signatory since 2004.

Using case studies from a variety of industries, the Global Compact's report illustrates how companies from different sectors contribute to peace and development while operating in difficult environments. PTNNT's ability to engage stakeholders and encourage multicultural understanding in a work
environment prone to interpersonal conflict was a featured best practice.

The mine's diverse 7,000 employee workforce has suffered conflict over the
years, as many employees struggled to embrace ethnic, cultural or
religious differences.
