At Stanwell, we understand that our ability to generate electricity is, in large part, dependent on the support of the communities in which we operate.

We are also aware of the impacts our operations can have on these communities.

We take great care to ensure the community knows the people who run our power stations and how they can access information about our operations.

Above all, we are keen to earn and maintain the welcome of the local community.

We also love to hear about ideas to make our host communities more vibrant, prosperous and inclusive. Find out more about Stanwell’s community investment and sponsorship programs.

As we go about our business of generating electricity, we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously.

We are upfront and open in addressing environmental concerns as they arise.

We also comply with and report against stringent regulations at all of our sites.

Our Environment Policy means that you can, and should, expect every Stanwell employee to act in an environmentally responsible way.
