Our Approach

Being‌ ‌a‌ ‌global‌ ‌leader‌ ‌in‌ ‌responsible‌ ‌mining‌ ‌is‌ ‌fundamental‌ ‌to‌ ‌our‌ vision, values, purpose and mission  ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌we‌ ‌put‌‌ ‌‌these‌ ‌into‌ ‌action‌ ‌across‌ ‌our‌ ‌business,‌ ‌every‌ ‌day.‌

Our‌ ‌vision‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌gold‌ ‌mining‌ ‌company‌ ‌for‌ ‌employees,‌ ‌communities,‌ ‌the‌ ‌environment,‌ ‌regulators,‌ ‌investors,‌ ‌and‌ ‌business‌ ‌partners.‌ ‌

This‌ ‌vision‌ ‌is ‌brought‌ ‌to‌ ‌life‌ ‌by‌ ‌organisational‌ ‌values‌ ‌that‌ ‌put‌ ‌the‌ ‌safety‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌people,‌ ‌communities,‌ ‌and‌ ‌environment‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌forefront‌ ‌of‌ ‌every‌ ‌decision‌ ‌we‌ ‌make.‌ It’s our values‌ ‌of‌ ‌respect,‌ ‌integrity,‌ ‌teamwork,‌ ‌innovation,‌ ‌action,‌ ‌and‌ ‌accountability,‌ ‌that‌ ‌help‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌drive‌ ‌better‌ ‌outcomes‌ ‌across‌ ‌our‌ ‌operation,‌ ‌development,‌ ‌and‌ ‌exploration‌ ‌activities.‌

Respect: We‌ ‌value‌ ‌our‌ ‌people,‌ ‌cultural‌ ‌diversity,‌ ‌communities,‌ ‌and‌ ‌environment.‌ ‌

Integrity: We‌ ‌are‌ ‌true‌ ‌to‌ ‌ourselves‌ ‌and‌ ‌do‌ ‌what‌ ‌is‌ ‌right.‌ ‌

Teamwork: We‌ ‌collaborate‌ ‌and‌ ‌value‌ ‌the‌ ‌power‌ ‌of‌ ‌teams.‌ ‌

Innovation: We‌ ‌challenge‌ ‌ourselves‌ ‌and‌ ‌others‌ ‌to‌ ‌improve.‌ ‌

Action: We‌ ‌move‌ ‌effectively‌ ‌from‌ ‌concept‌ ‌to‌ ‌implementation.‌ ‌

Accountability: We‌ ‌take‌ ‌ownership‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌decisions‌ ‌and‌ ‌actions.‌

Our purpose is to produce superior results that leave a positive legacy every day.

We achieve this when we deliver our commitments in line with our values and business strategy. Our management system is supported by a program of work to revise, implement and embed our responsible mining framework and benchmark our social performance within our industry.

In doing so, we challenge ourselves and others to improve our business and community programs and identify meaningful and positive outcomes that will endure long after a mine asset’s life cycle is complete.

Our mission is to double the value of our business.

Earning the right to operate long into the future means always building on our performance and working closely with communities, governments and global organisations. To support ongoing improvement we play an active role in international, national and regional industry organisations, multi-stakeholder groups and events that allow us to share our experience and help us better-understand and embed leading practice.

This is the OceanaGold Way. We are proud of our technical and sustainability practices and performance within the industry and continue to strive for excellence in everything we do.
