OUR COMMITMENT TO POSITIVE ENGAGEMENT
Beach’s long-term sustainability is contingent upon maintaining strong and meaningful relationships with the communities in which we operate.
Beach seeks to create and maintain long-term relationships that ensure we make a positive contribution to these communities.
We engage transparently with communities about our operations, consulting, listening and understanding their concerns and addressing them wherever we can.
Our regional managers are available at all times to connect with landholders, clubs and organisations, councils, and other members of the community.
Beach also contributes to regional economies by hiring locally and procuring local goods and services where possible, by paying royalties and taxes, and by investing locally in the form of sponsorships, local infrastructure improvements, and student work opportunities.
