Azure is committed to creating and preserving positive relationships for long-term success through active community engagement with business partners, governments, non-government organisations, host communities and other stakeholders.
Commitment to Community
At Azure, we strive to provide meaningful, ongoing social and economic benefit and support to the people and enterprises within and around our projects, as neighbouring communities and stakeholders are fundamental to the success and longevity of our activities.
Relationships with Traditional Owners
Azure acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and emerging and their contribution of cultural, spiritual, and educational practices.
A key ongoing focus is the development of positive relationships with Traditional Owners of areas in which the Company operates, including:
- The Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi people located in Karratha, associated with our Andover Project; and
- The Nyalpa Pirniku people in Leonora, associated with our Barton Project.
We remain committed to using best practices when it comes to exploration, development and mining and strive to continually develop our connection, understanding, and support of local communities and Indigenous people.
Our heritage management plans are built in consultation with each local community, ensuring that there is a suitable framework in place to manage and monitor matters of Indigenous heritage to the standards expected by the Traditional Owners and Azure and that any impact to aboriginal heritage resulting from our activities is minimised to the greatest extent reasonably practicable.
