CSIRO has developed a way to give communities a direct voice into 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.
In 2017, Rio Tinto engaged CSIRO for a three-year project to apply the CSIRO approach with communities in the Pilbara region. The project is called Local Voices. Local Voices will provide the communities neighbouring Rio Tinto’s operations in the Pilbara a direct voice inside the company, and help the company engage with the issues that matter most to these communities.
