Making a real difference - our community imperative
INPEX Australia is proudly supporting jobs, training, social and economic benefits flowing from our Australian business activities.
INPEX is committed to building trusted relationships with the communities in which we operate.
Our community engagement programs focus on three key areas of the Ichthys LNG footprint: the Northern Territory, and in Western Australia’s Kimberley region and Perth.
Since the early 2000s, INPEX has worked together with communities to provide local employment opportunities, education, and training for people with the potential to play a role in Ichthys LNG, and provision of on-going support for community organisations.
Our approach focuses on collaboration and shared two-way engagement with our business contractors, local industry associations, government authorities, residents, community partners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
