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.

Embedded in our approach to working with local communities is a commitment to establish and maintain mutually beneficial relationships.

A key part of this is employing locally. Stanwell employees live and work in many of the communities where we operate, and are actively involved in local community programs and activities. It is important our site leaders are known in our communities and accessible to our neighbours.

This also includes maintaining relationships with Traditional Owners in the areas where our assets are located throughout Queensland. At Stanwell, we recognise and respect the importance of protecting all Aboriginal cultural heritage and we take a proactive approach to engaging traditional owners to assist us manage any potential risk to their cultural heritage.

We actively listen to community concerns and expectations and consider them in our business planning. 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 and aim to work with our neighbours to quickly resolve any concerns. Click here to learn more about our approach to environmental sustainability.
