Corporate Social Responsibility
Broadcast Australia actively encourages management and staff to be involved with local communities throughout Australia. The following will give you a small insight into some of the great work we are supporting across the country.
|Broadcast Australia and SBS have joined together to form a team to participate in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. This charity fun run event offers four different runs/walks ranging from a 3.5km bridge walk up to the full 42km marathon and will raise money for 35 different charities. We are extremely proud of our efforts in raising more than $600,000 over the last five years through our joint participation in the MS Sydney-Gong Ride and we will continue to support MS Australia through the Running Festival.|
|Broadcast Australia commits to Earth Hour each year. Click here to find out more about Earth Hour. Not only for Earth Hour, but across the country we try to minimise our electricity use and switch our lights off (except on our towers of course), so that we can reduce our impact on the environment.|
Every 5th of June, Broadcast Australia celebrates World Environment Day. The theme first chosen in 2009 by the company's Environmental Steering Committee was "From Little Things Big Things Grow", reinforcing the concept that everyone plays a part in environmental sustainability. Around Australia, staff plant trees and continue to promote and implement new initiatives to protect the environment. To learn more about WED, click here.
In May 2011, Broadcast Australia and SBS partnered in a group team building activity which incorporated the "Books Behind Bars" program from the NSW Aboriginal Land Council. Management and staff donated books to send to prison libraries, helping diminish our country's growing prison population through education. Click here to read more about this initiative.
