A focus on reducing reliance on fossil fuel and reducing its carbon footprint placed Gold Fields Australia and EDL in top spot for the Golden Gecko award for environmental excellence.
The partners’ Agnew Hybrid Renewable Project provides a blueprint for remote operations and communities in Australia and globally to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, with both companies sharing knowledge across the industry.
The Dandjoo Darbalung program won the Community Partnership Resources Sector Award for its support of students from Indigenous communities in remote areas of Western Australia.
Supported by St Catherine’s College, IGO Ltd, AngloGold Ashanti, Sandfire Resources and Barminco, the program provides a holistic program to support Indigenous students with their tertiary studies while encouraging and nurturing their cultural identity. It is the largest Indigenous residential program in Australia.
