Argyle believes it has the capacity - and the responsibility - to make a positive and long-term difference to its stakeholders. This approach is led by the Argyle management team who strongly believe that organisations such as Argyle must show respect and concern for the environments in which they operate, and for the people that their business activities impact upon.
Because Argyle operates in a region of significant economic and social disadvantage, one of the organisation's key priorities is to help build a stronger and more robust East Kimberley economy, that is not dependent upon the mine's operations. To this end, it has initiated training, employment and business development programs, especially for Indigenous people, which will improve the region's skill base and increase the number and profile of self-sustaining businesses. Argyle is also supporting Traditional Owners to become the drivers of economic and community development, so that growth and improvement will continue for indigenous communities long after Argyle has 'closed up shop'.
Argyle is also committed to helping its workers and their families build healthy and rewarding lifestyles, through the provision of world-class employee development opportunities, study assistance schemes, medical assistance schemes, healthy lifestyle programs, and the offering of a diversity of career options.
As a major player in the East Kimberley region, Argyle is committed to the development of community development and capacity building initiatives to help ensure that the economic and social benefits in the region endure beyond the life of the mine.
The Indigenous people of the East Kimberley region possess a strong belief system through which they understand their country and their relationship to it.
Argyle's dedication to the development of self-sustaining communities in the region has led to its investment in a range of community and regional programmes aimed at fostering long-term benefits in the region.
The Argyle Diamond Mine provides financial support to a wide range of charities and causes, primarily those concerned with advancing children's health and education.
The Argyle Diamond Mine operates in a region of environmental and ecological significance. Argyle operates under an environmental management system that ensures minimum environmental impact and promotes rehabilitation of affected environments as soon as practical.
Argyle is committed to the safety and health of all employees and visitors and aims to minimise hazards and risks in the workplace.
The Argyle Diamond Mine is supported by local townships and communities.
