BCI acknowledges and has deep respect for the ongoing physical and spiritual connection Aboriginal people have to the land associated with our projects. BCI acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we operate.
BCI considers it important to native title holders/claimants to give their free, prior, fully informed consent to its project activities. To achieve this objective, BCI has entered into comprehensive agreements with native title parties that provide for meaningful ongoing engagement, continued access to country, compensation and mutual benefits.
BCI adopts a best practice approach to ensure that Aboriginal heritage values associated with our projects are identified and managed in accordance with the requirements of native title parties. BCI ensures that, through collaborative processes with our Aboriginal partners, project designs are sensitive to Aboriginal connection and heritage values.
BCI personnel are committed to the delivery of knowledge by our Aboriginal partners to understand the history and cultural of Traditional Owners to develop strong cultural awareness.
