Our Community

At Jemena, we help bring energy to life for over 1.7 million Australian homes and businesses every day. With a footprint spanning various parts of eastern and northern Australia, we’re also a proud member of hundreds of wonderful and diverse local communities.

Partnering for good

To us, being a good neighbour means helping to improve the welfare and wellbeing of our customers and local communities. So each year, we partner with, sponsor, and donate to a range of not-for-profit and community organisations that support people living in the communities where we operate.

Community grants

What’s important to the people who live and work in our local areas is important to us. Through our Community Grants Program, we provide financial support to charities and not-for-profit organisations and causes that make a real difference for communities.

Giving back

Through our corporate volunteering program all of our team members have the opportunity to spend one full day or two half-days per year volunteering, helping with activities like preparing nutritious meals for community members in need, local environmental clean-up days, fundraising drives and more.  

We’re also proud to offer workplace giving and other programs that see us support the special causes our people take part in or volunteer with outside of work – from raising funds and issue awareness via memorial walks to emergency service and rescue efforts, coaching local sports teams and more.

Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan

Jemena has a proud history of partnering with Aboriginal communities throughout the development of major projects, like our Northern Gas Pipeline. With a footprint in most States and Territories across Australia, we have the opportunity to build many positive and long standing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

We have a strong desire to continue to build on these foundations through the commitments we make in our inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan. The RAP is a significant milestone as we continue to play our role in reconciliation in this country.

Our position on Modern Slavery

We are opposed to all forms of modern slavery and forced labour in our industry, our business operations, and in the operations of our suppliers. We are committed to ensuring that modern slavery is not present within our business and supply chains.

What is modern slavery?
Modern slavery is an umbrella term for situations in which a person is forcibly or subtly controlled by an individual or a group, for the purpose of exploitation. Modern slavery can happen in a variety of ways, such as forced labour, child labour, human trafficking, debt slavery, deceptive recruiting for labour and/or services, and exploitation of minimum wage requirements.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth).

What are we doing about modern slavery?
We are establishing working practices that enable us to monitor and reduce modern slavery risk within our business and supply chains. 

As an industry, we have actively participated in an energy industry-wide action group to identify opportunities to integrate sustainable procurement procedures and implement a human rights compliance program. These have been documented in the Energy Procurement Supply Association (EPSA) report, Respecting Human Rights in our Supply Chains. This report is a practical guide to understanding business and moral challenges, and will help shape the development of appropriate mechanisms to detect, manage and report human rights issues in the future.

Sustainability

Energy underpins our lives; it heats our homes, powers our economy, and charges our phones. As a leading energy infrastructure company we’re committed to providing our customers with reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy.

Our 2020 Sustainability Report outlines our activities and achievements for that year, including:

  • the support we provided to the people and communities where we operate,
  • how we’re contributing to a low-carbon future and protecting our environment, and
  • the work we’ve done to make energy more affordable, while also ensuring it remains reliable, for everyday Australians.
