Our work with the community

Ports work within and with their communities to improve the local area for everyone

Living in the community

Australia's Ports are 24 hours, seven days a week and 365 days a year operations existing at the centre of cities, towns and their communities. They are major employers as well as facilitators for other businesses and industries.

Ports live in geographically and economically central positions  within their communities both big and small.

As a result, our Ports take an active role in their local communities. They support schools and provide grants for educational projects. Their staff play in the local sports teams and have families that attend the local schools.
Port management is always looking for new and useful ways of supporting the communities that support them.

These efforts align with the UN Sustainability Goals framework. These goals also form the base for our Sustainability Report, you can find a number of community examples in the report.
