In developing and maintaining Queensland’s high voltage electricity transmission network, we engage with diverse stakeholders including landowners, communities, environmental groups, Traditional Owners, government agencies and other key stakeholders. We are committed to effective and genuine stakeholder engagement practices with a focus on securing our social licence to operate by meaningfully engaging to deliver mutually valued outcomes. To help us improve the effectiveness of how we listen, inform and interact with stakeholders, we have sought feedback from landholders, state and local governments, government agencies, customers and electricity consumers. Using this feedback, we developed a suite of initiatives and engagement guidelines.
Our Stakeholder Engagement Framework guides our interactions with individuals and organisations, focusing on the principles of integrity, openness, responsiveness, accountability and inclusiveness.

Throughout the year we run a number of forums for interested stakeholders discussing a variety of topics including demand and energy forecasting, new technologies and the future of our network.
