Mineral Resources is committed to making a positive impact on society through partnerships and contributions that strengthen our communities.
We understand genuine and effective partnerships are based on mutual trust, respect and understanding – and we work with local organisations, governments, not-for-profits, and community groups and stakeholders to build strong relationships that deliver positive outcomes.
Partnerships and contributions
MinRes prioritises partnerships and contributions that benefit communities and demonstrate our commitment to social responsibility.
Our contributions align with the following five focus areas:
- Health & wellbeing: Encouraging mental and physical health and wellbeing through research, prevention and treatment programs.
- Employment: Improving employment and training outcomes for disadvantaged groups and the broader mining sector.
- Education: Providing education support for disadvantaged groups, including children and young people, to help grow tomorrow’s bright minds.
- Aboriginal engagement: Investing in programs and initiatives that improve opportunities and outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
- Environment: Committing to projects that enrich environments where we live and work, supporting our efforts to reach net zero emissions.
The types of partnerships and contributions we support fall into four categories:
1. Multi-year partnerships with organisations creating positive outcomes
2. Community donations to charity fundraisers and not-for-profit organisations
3. Community education support through contributions to primary and high schools
4. Contributions to community facilities and events
More information on our community partnerships and contributions is available below, or in our 2021 Sustainability Report (page 101).
