Our Community Fund
At Energex, we see our organisation as an important partner to the community. Not only are we committed to delivering safe and reliable power to the people of South East Queensland, but every year, we have the privilege of supporting community initiatives through our Community and Sustainability Fund.
This Fund enables our organisation to provide financial support to local grassroots groups, which helps them deliver beneficial projects like wildlife rescues, the revegetation of river banks and school veggie patches, and healthy lifestyle education programs.
It's all about giving the local community a helping hand. Since its launch in early 2011, our Fund has assisted over 120 community groups. These include:
- Community and sporting clubs
- Cultural heritage groups
- Gardening and agriculture societies
- Industry associations
- Animal welfare groups
- Service groups
- Volunteer organisations.
Our sustainable practices provide the key to funding these valuable initiatives. Through the sale of our scrap materials, we have been able to provide over $350,000 worth of financial support to local communities. In this way, we are turning our organisation's 'trash' into another person's treasure.
We are committed to supporting organisations that, like Energex, work to enhance the communities in which they operate.
