Community investment strategy

INPEX is in the process of developing a longer-term community investment strategy to articulate how we would like to create positive impact for communities in the areas in which we operate through our community investment activities.

The focus areas (themes) that we would like to support through community investment are shown in the table above and in our Sponsorship Application Guidelines.

Further information will be updated on this webpage in coming months to provide greater clarity to the community on the types of initiatives we are most willing to support.
