Community investment

As a socially responsible company, our investment in local communities is part of our broader commitment to minimising the impact of our project activities and supporting programs and initiatives that benefit those who live in the areas where we operate.

Through our community investment program we partner with local councils and community organisations to deliver these initiatives. This includes significant support for the development or improvement of social infrastructure, sponsorship of state and regional events, along with smaller one-off donations for community initiatives.  

Our community investment aligns with commitments made in our Social Impact Management Plan (SIMP). Since 2010, we have contributed more than $200M across our project regions to support social infrastructure.

Investment in social infrastructure

As part of our commitment to minimising impacts and sharing the benefits of our project with local communities, we are investing in:  

  • road infrastructure upgrades
  • social and affordable housing
  • airport upgrades in Gladstone and Roma to improve passenger transit safety and service frequency
  • community health initiatives in the Maranoa and Gladstone regions.
