Illawarra Metallurgical Coal is committed to supporting the communities in which it operates. We have a long proud history of supporting community programmes and projects through various funding initiatives, including infrastructure and services; in-kind professional support; and simply lending a hand when needed.
The operations community investment programme includes two community-based spending programmes which are administered by boards made up of community and company representatives – the Illawarra Coal Community Partnerships Programme (CPP) and the Dendrobium Community Enhancement Programme (DCEP).
Illawarra Metallurgical Coal contributes more than A$1 million on average each year to worthwhile social projects and programmes in the Illawarra and Wollondilly regions through its community investment initiatives.
Illawarra Metallurgical Coal recognises it has a responsibility to continually consult with the communities in which it operates, to provide timely information about its operations and future plans, and address community concerns and achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.
Illawarra Metallurgical Coal manages an integrated programme of engagement which includes two community consultative committees which promote open discussion on operational matters, environmental matters and community relations. The committees associated with the two major consents are: the Illawarra Coal Community Consultative Committee (CCC) associated with Illawarra Coal’s Bulli Seam Operations in the Wollondilly region; and the Dendrobium Community Consultative Committee (DCCC) which is associated with the Dendrobium Mine in the Illawarra region.
The Company also convenes other community working parties to consult on specific projects as required, and participates in a range of local community groups, which address issues such as economic development and mining heritage.
