EnergyAustralia’s workplace giving programme passes A$2 million in donations

EnergyAustralia actively engages with its local communities through volunteering, workplace giving and social investment.

In 2023, over A$200,000 in Community Grants was awarded to 38 local community programmes near EnergyAustralia's power stations and Geelong contact centre.


As part of EnergyAustralia's Workplace Giving programme, staff donations are made to nine charity partners through pre-tax donations, which are then matched by EnergyAustralia. EnergyAustralia continue to have one of the highest participation rates among all participants in Australia, and in July 2023, the Company celebrated surpassing A$2 million in donations to our charity partners within the first five years of the programme. 

EnergyAustralia's employees are granted 16 hours of paid volunteering leave each year. In 2023, the Company refreshed its volunteering policy to provide additional flexibility. Since implementing this change, over 600 of EnergyAustralia's employees have volunteered a total of 1,400 hours in their local communities.  

To extend EnergyAustralia's support further, the Company End of Year Giving Appeal resulted in a donation of A$54,000 to its Workplace Giving charity partners. In addition, EnergyAustralia's contributed over A$10,000 worth of toys and hamper items through donations to local Christmas appeals in its communities. Dedicated volunteers in Melbourne and Geelong sorted the donated presents to give underprivileged children the joy of receiving gifts at Christmas. Furthermore, a team of volunteers assembled 21 items of furniture for three Melbourne families who were setting up new homes after experiencing family violence and homelessness.
