Aeris aims to develop genuine and lasting relationships with key stakeholders, including the communities in which it operates. To this end, the Company seeks to be an active participant in the economic and social wellbeing of these communities and to contribute to long-term community prosperity by providing programs which will prosper long into the future.
The active program of community participation near Aeris’ Tritton Copper Operations includes support of (but not limited to):
- Sporting groups;
- Apprenticeships and training; and
- Community development.
Examples of active community development initiatives include during FY2019: providing local apprentices with practical experience; supporting the Outback Science and Engineering Challenge; provision of funding for local school activities; and sponsoring local sporting teams.
The budget for Tritton Copper Operations’ community support is set at a site level in consultation with the corporate office in Brisbane. The committee members are all employed at the operations. The committee meets on a regular basis and considers applications for funding and sponsorship using the Company’s values as the guide for areas of focus.
