Community

Our approach

Bis is committed to delivering positive and lasting results to the communities where we work and live.  We have a proud history of supporting our communities throughout Australia and Indonesia. 

By forming partnerships and sponsorships that target areas of real need, we can create the biggest impact in our communities.

We have identified three priority areas of communication investment to support our commodities and guide our sponsorship activities: 

Education and training

Bis supports initiatives that focus on creating a culture of innovation by providing access to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education programs, especially focusing on young women We also aim to support Indigenous education, more specifically the improvement of educational attainment in Indigenous populations such as our involvement with the Girls Academy.

Community development

We support fundraising, sponsoring and providing support services towards the development of local communities, such as social programs, supporting cultural activities and artists and investment into infrastructure building and disaster relief. Recent examples of our commitment to community development include our work with the Whyalla community and the uneARTh festival as well as our ongoing partnership
with The Big Issue Women’s Subscription Enterprise. Read more about this partnership here.
 
Bis also exhibits corporate social responsibility, including investment into environmental sustainability programs and animal conservation.

Health and wellbeing

We support local initiatives that promote healthy living behaviours that actively improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.
 Bis looks to support areas that tackle societal challenges by raising awareness about important health issues. We have been involved in a number of sporting sponsorships including the Boddington Junior Football Club and the Bis Regional Girls Soccer Carnival in Whyalla.
