We believe that a planned, transparent and constructive approach to community engagement and development is critical to maintaining our reputation and ensuring that the communities in which we operate benefit from Newcrest’s operations.
Newcrest’s Support Funds
Newcrest’s Community Support Fund was established in April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since its inception 67 initiatives have received funding, ranging from immediate health assistance to livelihood restoration and economic recovery across Papua New Guinea, Australia, Canada (British Columbia), Ecuador and Fiji.
A Newcrest Sustainability Fund has recently been established to drive strategic social investments in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with a A$10 million commitment in FY23 which may include multi-year projects. The budget will be reviewed on an annual basis.
