We have extended the Zero Harm commitment into the communities in which we operate and of which we form part. This is a demonstration of the commitment we have to our corporate social responsibilities, particularly in remote areas where the impact of our operations are most significant and where our corporate social responsibilities programmes are most relevant and deserving.
Over the years, our community programmes included:
Yelekitj Koorndaam Nyungar Language Project (Western Australia)
Funds assisted in continuing the Yelcarnia Bibbulmun Nyungar Traditions, Culture and Dreaming through the revival, maintenance and teaching of the Nyungar language.
Tenby10 Project - Indigenous addition (South Australia)
Working together with our customer, these funds will add a focus to our customer's Tenby10 project to raise the Indigenous community’s awareness of how to mitigate the health risks from working and living in proximity to the mine and port in Port Pirie.
Yunderup/Ravenswood Volunteer Bushfire Brigade (Western Australia)
Bis Industries funded the purchase of a projector, a screen and a laptop to support the training of all volunteers with up to date training information.
Variety Queensland – Children’s Charity (Queensland)
Bis Industries funded a Variety Liberty swing for disabled children.
Riding for the Disabled Association (Tasmania)
Bis Industries funded the purchase of a carriage driving horse and harness
Glenorchy Junior Football Club (Tasmania)
