Our communities

We acknowledge how important our economic contribution is to our stakeholders. We are open about our contribution and are proud to be able to give back to our communities and help to strengthen our economy.

We are committed to contributing positively to our local communities through trusted, transparent, and long-term relationships. We view these relationships as essential to maintaining our social licence to operate. We recognise and respect the deep connection First Nations people have with the land and are committed to operating in a way that protects their cultural heritage.

Commitment to engagement

Aurelia uses a number of engagement mechanisms to foster transparent, inclusive and meaningful engagement with our stakeholders. Stakeholder engagement allows us to share information about our activities and performance and gain an understanding of our stakeholders’ needs and concerns to inform our decision making.

Social investment 

In the last three years, Aurelia is proud to report approximately 50% of our procurement has been sourced within our local regions, injecting more than $400M into our regional communities.

In addition to this amount, we have donated approximately $830k to local community groups and events.

Our focus is to support local community groups and businesses wherever possible with our main priority being projects supporting health, education and cultural initiatives. We also have ongoing relationships with local sporting groups and community events, which we believe are the beating heart of local communities in regional NSW.
