CSIRO has developed a way to help communities engage with companies that operate alongside them. Our approach enables a dynamic interaction between company and 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, the Local Voices project 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 their 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.
Pulse surveys now open!

COVID-19: Share your thoughts, ideas and experiences
We have developed this special COVID-19 Pulse survey theme to help us, BHP, government, and others know how you are feeling right now, and to help these groups coordinate how best to support you and your community.
Local Voices will be doubling community group tokens for each completed Pulse survey to do our part to make sure community groups receive much-needed contributions during this difficult time. Learn more
Every Local Voices survey is your opportunity to have a voice inside BHP and inform the company’s decision making. It only takes 5 minutes and is 100% confidential.
