Through our community investment activities, we support the building of vibrant, prosperous and resilient communities.

We aim to make a positive impact in communities where we operate, through four priority areas:

  • Education and training programs
  • Health and wellbeing initiatives
  • Business capacity building
  • Programs that aim to connect and empower the community.

In 2020, we invested almost A$ 2 million to support a range of social programs, community events and charitable appeals, including the following:

  • More than $1 million donated to Australian Red Cross in support of bushfire relief and recovery efforts during the 2019-2020 Australian bushfire season;
  • Support for COVID-19-related response and research activities through Foodbank NT and Menzies School of Health Research;
  • Continued support of community programs through strategic partnerships with organisations such as Questacon, Australian Red Cross NT, AFL NT, Darwin Festival, Ronald McDonald House Perth, Engineers Australia Northern, NT Indigenous Business Network, Petroleum Club of WA, Energy Club NT and Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Darwin;
  • Support for scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the University of Western Australia, and for Territorian students at Charles Darwin University; and
  • Sponsorship of a number of community events and programs in Darwin, Broome and Perth including providing in-principle support for events that were postponed to later 2020 and 2021.

In February 2021, INPEX also pledged more than $200,000 in support of relief and recovery efforts for people impacted by the 2021 Wooroloo/Perth hills bushfire.

Each year, we also provide in-kind support to community partners through employee volunteering, paid-for advertising and promotional opportunities, as well as providing expertise through presentations and mentoring.

In 2021, as Ichthys LNG moves into its third year of operations, we continue to place a greater emphasis on developing and expanding strategic partnerships creating meaningful and long-term positive impact in our host communities.
