Our community

With infrastructure spanning the length and breadth of the State and employees working in both towns and regions, we believe we have an important role to play in supporting the Tasmanian community. It's our aim to be a good corporate citizen, not just in what we do but how we do it.

We're keen to get involved in the life of the Tasmanian community through our support for education, by providing financial support for special projects and by encouraging our people to take part in sporting and health-related activities such as the Point to Pinnacle, the Run the Bridge Hobart and the City to Casino fun run/walk. Through our sponsorship program we aim to develop meaningful partnerships with other organisations that deliver mutual benefits.

Education is important to us. That's why you'll find us getting involved in projects such as the Lenah Valley Primary School's Bushland Classroom program which encourages youngsters to learn about the value of biodiversity. We're also keen to foster the engineering profession by providing a range of scholarships for engineering students at the University of Tasmania and by operating our own Graduate Recruitment Program. Educating the broader community on the potential dangers posed by our infrastructure is one aspect of our good corporate citizen activities that we take particularly seriously. Our annual Don't Die: Look Up Look Out safety campaign, run in conjunction with Aurora Energy, aims to save lives by raising community awareness of the dangers posed by overhead power lines.
