West Wallsend recognises that genuine partnerships with local communities and stakeholders are part of a successful business. As such, West Wallsend devotes time, effort and resources to communication and involvement  with local communities and engages as a responsible corporate citizen with the wider society of which it is a part.

We have developed a Stakeholder Engagement Plan as part of our EMS for operations, which includes face to face consultation. The primary functions of the face to face consultation program are to exchange information and receive regular feedback from stakeholders regarding our operational, environmental and social performance.
