Rio seeks feed­back

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Rio Tinto is ask­ing Pil­bara res­i­dents for feed­back on how the com­pany op­er­ates in their com­mu­ni­ties in a new sur­vey to bet­ter gauge lo­cal at­ti­tudes.

The Lo­cal Voices project will in­volve the CSIRO co-or­di­nat­ing two sets of sur­veys on be­half of Rio — a pre­lim­i­nary an­chor sur­vey and a se­ries of monthly polls — over a three-year pe­riod, to an­a­lyse com­mu­nity at­ti­tudes to the com­pany’s iron ore op­er­a­tions in the Pil­bara and use those to in­form fu­ture de­ci­sion-mak­ing.

Com­mu­ni­ties in­cluded are Tom Price, Parabur­doo, Pan­na­won­ica, Kar­ratha, Wick­ham, Roe­bourne and sur­round­ing dis­tricts.

CSIRO se­nior re­search sci­en­tist Kieran Mof­fat said the data would be for­mally in­ter­preted and shared back with Rio and Pil­bara com­mu­ni­ties.
