Stakeholder Engagement

Engaging with our stakeholders – who we consider to be any person or organization influential to our success or potentially impacted by our activities – allows us to share information about our activities and decisions and gain a greater understanding of their needs and perspectives.

Stakeholder engagement plans at the corporate, regional and site level ensure we deliver on our commitment to ongoing and honest dialogue and transparent, timely and fact-based communications with our stakeholders. These elements are critical to building trusting relationships based on mutual respect and managing risks present in our business. In addition, stakeholder engagement helps inform our site-level management plans and validate our priorities and salient human rights issues.

In addition to ongoing stakeholder engagement, in 2018, we surveyed more than 400 community leaders, NGOs, government officials, employees, members of the media, and other key stakeholders to deepen our understanding of Newmont’s reputation among stakeholders and develop action plans to enhance transparency and advocacy.

Because each stakeholder has unique and specific areas of concern, the channel and frequency of engagement varies. An overview of our approach to engaging with our main stakeholders is described in the following table, with additional detail provided throughout this report.
