CSIRO has developed a way to help communities engage with companies that operate alongside them through the Local Voices project. Our approach enables a dynamic interaction between the company and the community that aims to increase understanding on all sides, build trust, and strengthen relationships. It builds upon knowledge gained from Australian and global communities through thousands of CSIRO research hours over the past decade.
Over the next three years, Local Voices aims to improve engagement between BHP and the community by providing an opportunity for increased understanding of views and experiences and encouraging the building of trust through actions. BHP has committed to using community insights in its decision-making. While the company may not be able to solve every issue raised, they will share the results with the business to ensure they are better informed on the things that matter most to the local communities.
Final survey of the series is open!
