Arrium recognises that achieving positive sustainable relationships within the communities in which we operate is imperative to doing business. At Arrium, we have fostered a responsible approach to demonstrating social responsibility by promoting values and initiatives such as investment and engagement that show respect for the people and communities associated with our business.
There are a number of key initiatives and consultation based programs that have been formed or further strengthened, to reflect key issues that affect our local communities. In addition, Arrium and its employees pride themselves on physically or financially supporting regional and local activities from providing education and training, donations and sponsorships through to charity fundraising events, all of which require personal commitment and the dedication of individuals.
To monitor the ongoing impact of Arrium operations, we invest, inform, consult and develop relationships with local communities to work towards mutually beneficial outcomes and to continually earn our social licence to operate.
Arrium’s OneCommunity Workplace Giving Program supports 12 charities. The program was established to provide employees with an easily accessible way to donate to a range of charities. Arrium matches employee contributions made through OneCommunity up to $250,000 per annum. Current charities include: Alzheimer’s Australia, The Cancer Council, CARE Australia, Guide Dogs, Hunter Medical Research Institute, Landcare Australia, Lifeline, Royal Flying Doctor Service, RSPCA, The Smith Family, The Salvation Army and Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
