Effective and ongoing stakeholder engagement enables better planned and more informed policies, projects and services including a greater understanding and management of issues and potential risks. For stakeholders, the benefits of engagement include the opportunity to have their issues heard and contribute to the decision-making process.

The following engagement principles are used when conducting our business:

Inclusive – We understand and acknowledge stakeholders’ views and consider the issues from their perspective, and be clear and open in our communications.

Relevant – We are risk-based and adaptive, and continuously adjusting our focus in response to changing circumstances, seeking the best outcome for the people of Western Australia.

Responsive – We keep stakeholders informed of issues that affect them by providing transparent, timely, consistent and accessible information and feedback, and engage in a manner that encourages mutual trust and respect.

Stakeholders are individuals, groups or organisations affected, directly or indirectly, by our activities and those that affect our activities. These include the broader community, internal staff, communities affected by mining or petroleum activities, local State and federal governments, community groups, Aboriginal communities and industry groups.
