Altona recognises its commitments to the social environment and its responsibilities to the community.

Community Engagement

Altona has adopted three key tenets in bringing the project to fruition with the community’s input and support: “Accessibility, Transparency, Trust”.

This is a commercial project but Altona recognizes that social obligations form an integral part of the proposal, which means identifying stakeholders, communities and interested parties, developing an engagement action plan in tandem with project development, and informing the community from an early stage, which may include:

Aboriginal Heritage and Native Title

Surveys of any area likely to be affected by the footprint of Project facilities will need to be undertaken to assess Native Title issues and understand and protect Aboriginal heritage values. This is an important aspect of the Project approval process, noting that a Work Area Clearance was obtained for the 2007 – 2008 Wintinna field program from the Antakarinja Matu-Yankunytjatjara Native Title Claimants.

European Heritage

Altona recognises the need to identify European heritage items and issues within its area of operation and to preserve these. This will be a legally binding provision of the company’s operational licenses.
