Through its businesses, Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers (WesCEF) has been an activate participant in the communities in which we operate for over 100 years.
In 2016/17, WesCEF contributed just over $300,000 through direct financial support and the donation of goods. A majority of this funding was dedicated to sponsorships within the local community.
To complement our community sponsorship grants, WesCEF has a strong, long-term partnership in place with the Clontarf Foundation, in particular the Gilmore Clontarf Academy. Clontarf exists to improve the education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men.
We also support local community events such as the Rockingham Community Fair and the City of Kwinana Concert Under the Stars.
We support and encourage our employees to participate in a number of community fundraising events such as, the HBF Run for a Reason, Movember, Clean Up Australia Day, National Tree Day and Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.
WesCEF values industry collaboration and sharing knowledge to collectively improve health, safety and environmental performance. We demonstrate this through our active involvement in a number of industry bodies in Western Australia and Victoria including, the Kwinana Industries Council.
WesCEF's businesses have an ongoing commitment to keeping the community informed of our activities. We conduct site tours for a range of stakeholders, maintain relevant and current websites, post information on the Kwinana Industries Council’s Community Information Service and distribute media statements, as appropriate. WesCEF's businesses also regularly participate in the Kwinana Community and Industries Forum.
