What we do

We have a clear purpose - helping the community and the government make the best use of our renewable and non-renewable land, mineral and energy resources.

Partnerships with our customers and stakeholders are important to us, as we work to deliver policies, programs and services that support industry while reflecting the needs of the broader community.

  • Innovation driven to unlock our data’s potential
  • Great careers: a contemporary workforce set apart by its expertise, innovation, collaboration and leadership
  • Positive stakeholder and public sentiment on all of our policies, programs and people
