Chinchilla Community Benefits Trust
The Chinchilla Community Benefits Trust was established in 2004 during the construction of CS Energy's Kogan Creek Power Station. Under a legal deed, CS Energy and the Western Downs Regional Council are joint trustees, awarding community grants to local organisations every two years.
So far, we’ve invested more than $800,000 through the trust to social infrastructure and community service projects in the region.
Round nine recipients announced
Seven local community groups have received a funding boost from Round nine of the Chinchilla Community Benefits Trust.
The community grounds shared in $55,000 in funding from the Trust, which was announced at a community on 18 August 2015.
Funding was available for projects that related to one or more of the following key focus areas:
- Community infrastructure (facilities and services)
- Skills, education, training and youth development
- Safety, health and wellbeing
- Environment and sustainability.
Other social investment
CS Energy strives to be recognised and trusted as a socially responsible business. Our Social Investment Framework underpins our approach to sponsorships, grants and donations.
As CS Energy focusses on returning to profit, we have temporarily ceased all non-committed sponsorships, grants and donations. This decision will be reviewed as our business performance improves.
We remain committed to the communities that host our operations. We will work with key community stakeholders to ensure our ongoing non-financial support in every way we can. For more information, contact the Corporate Communications Team.
