Indigenous pledge

We acknowledge the Indigenous Australian Peoples of the lands where Gold Fields conducts its operations.

Gold Fields wishes to pay its deepest respects to all their ancestors and members of their communities, past, present, in addition to their emerging leaders.

At our core is a commitment and passion to work with all Australians and peoples from across the world, and this is reflected in our values and our commitment to reconciliation in Australia.

We have proven success in our commitment to managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. We hope our commitment to managing ESG will see Gold Fields become the preferred gold mining company. This goes hand in hand with our allegiance to recognising the history and culture of Aboriginal peoples, and to better understand how to contribute to the preservation, protection and celebration of those cultures.

We understand that building greater awareness of these cultures enables us to better understand the potential impacts of our operations on Aboriginal communities, which is why we are committed to a process of listening and learning as part of our Reconciliation journey. 

In line with Gold Fields’ values, our commitment to reconciliation is based on:

Building trusted relationships with our Aboriginal stakeholders, based on mutual respect and dignity.

Our responsibility to contribute to the communities in which we operate, and

Acting with integrity, to create an environment in which everyone can achieve success.

Gold Fields recognises that as a strong business, we are uniquely placed to enable economic opportunity, and seek to engage meaningfully with Indigenous Australians through training and employment, business development, and cultural heritage activities   

Strong relationships with Indigenous Peoples in Australia are critical to our business.

Gold Fields Australia has taken an important step in this relationship journey with the launch of its Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) attached. The Innovate RAP is a detailed roadmap to creating enduring value for the Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate, and the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
