Community Investment Program

INVESTING IN OUR COMMUNITIES

At Southern Ports we take our responsibility to support the communities in which we live and work seriously. The Southern Ports Community Investment Program provides support for more than 100 activities and events each year that benefit the communities of Albany, Bunbury and Esperance.

Typical projects include sporting events, agricultural shows and community infrastructure. These examples are not exhaustive, and we are always on the lookout for new initiatives to support - particularly those in the areas of maritime, sustainability, education, community events, community infrastructure and initiatives that support and create opportunities for Traditional Owners. 

We are proud of our contribution and look forward to getting behind more initiatives that make a difference to our communities
