Community and Relationships

We are fostering strong and collaborative partnerships with our host communities, suppliers, industry, and government partners to create shared and enduring value.

Developing strong relationships with our stakeholders at a corporate, regional and local level is vital for the success of our business. We partner with our stakeholders to build trust and develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of customers and communities, deliver commercial value and address critical environmental and social sustainability issues across our value chain.

Helping build safe, resilient and thriving communities


Our global business brings us into contact with diverse communities and we believe that our success is tied to theirs. That is why we are committed to building safe, resilient and thriving communities in our areas of operation. From our focus on safety and management of natural resources to our contribution to social and economic development we strive to prevent harm and enhance our positive impact on communities. 

Community investment and the Orica Impact Fund


Guided by our Community Impact and Investment Framework, we are focused on building long-term relationships based on trust and transparency and providing targeted and strategic investment that seed lasting positive outcomes for local communities. Under this framework, Orica is committed to investing at least A$15m across our global communities from FY2021 to FY2025.

In FY2021 we launched the Orica Impact Fund which enhances our existing regional community investment and prioritises support for local, grassroots initiatives across our global operations that improve social equity and wellbeing, education, environmental outcomes and helps foster community togetherness.

We are on track to achieve our five-year community investment target. Over A$6m has been invested since FY2021 to deliver positive social and environmental outcomes in the communities we operate in around the world.
