We have strong and enduring partnerships with the kaitiaki over the land upon which we operate, and we are proud of our work to understand and acknowledge iwi perspectives because we recognise the intergenerational impact our site has had on tangata whenua from our region.
We are proud to have formal relationship agreements with two of our nearest iwi partners. This mechanism means we have a way to recognise our differences and to provide the framework to allow us to work together in a positive way as we move forward. We are committed to upholding the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and the impact of our operations on the site, and harbour, at Marsden Point.
We work closely with local Iwi to ensure we minimise our impacts on the coastline and land upon which we operate, through active environmental management plans, and a firm understanding of how we can mitigate the risks of operating our consented heavy-industrial site.
We have also committed to ongoing consultation and open and honest communication between Channel Infrastructure and iwi partners, to ensure they are informed of any activities onsite that may have an impact on them as kaitiaki.
