Community engagement and partnerships

We are committed to being a good corporate citizen and to supporting communities within the areas where we operate. In many of the regions where we operate we are a major supplier and significantly contribute to the local economy through direct and indirect employment.

We believe our Company ethos of ‘taking care’ sets us apart. ‘Taking care’ is shown through the way we support groups and charitable organisations that help bring our Company purpose to life ‘To make it easier for hygiene, health and wellbeing to be part of everyday life’ and also aligns with our Company values ‘Pride - Integrity - Courage’.

Our sponsorship strategy is focused on enhancing established partnerships, these include Ronald McDonald House Charities and Foodbank, and complementing these with corporate and brand donations and sponsorships that support our staff, customers and local communities. Our support of the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia and New Zealand involves an annual donation, in-kind product donations and employee volunteering.

In addition, through our brands we provide education opportunities that are directly linked to improving hygiene, health and wellbeing outcomes. In Fiji, our Libra brand supports Medical Services Pacific which helps vulnerable populations in the Pacific through their ‘Girl Empowered’ initiative. This initiative aims to educate young girls about puberty, sexuality and reproductive health care. Libra also donates product to the Melbourne Period Project in Australia, which assists women experiencing homelessness by providing sanitary products, help and support. Libra also provides information and support to young women through online and social media platforms.
