Creating both respectful and trust based relationships with all our stakeholders is how we aim to do business at Northern Star.
We believe that our organisation must be guided by a purpose beyond profit. We believe that that the support of, and trust in our activities by, the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our long-term success and the continuation of our social license to operate.
Stakeholder trust and respect is only gained through our acknowledgement of our organisation’s impacts on the environmental, economic and social landscapes: both positive and negative. We aim to remove or reduce the negative impacts and maximize the positives. See our Stakeholder Policy
The business of mining mobilises vast amounts of technical capacity and physical resources into often remote regions. This presents us with the opportunity to deliver “shared-value” to our stakeholders socially, economically and environmentally. Shared-value is realised by identifying and providing a Northern Star capacity or resource that has a measurable, positive impact on a stakeholder social, economic or environmental need, as well as delivering a benefit to the Company.
By targeting stakeholder shared-value, we aim to create more resilient regional communities as we conduct our core business activity of mining gold.
