Community Engagement - Sustainable Outcomes - Long Term Value Creation
Adani Australia currently has 800 people working across operations and projects in Queensland.
Each month we pay $7.2 million in salaries to our direct staff and seconded employees (average for last 6 months).
We are proud this money is supporting the livelihoods of local people and we value the work they do and the enthusiasm they bring to work every day.
We remain committed to the Carmichael project and look forward to the time when more people in places like Townsville and Bowen can join the Adani team.
Over the life of the Carmichael, Adani Australia will create 10,000 direct and indirect jobs. Those are jobs with Adani, with our contractors and in the supporting mining industry and community businesses like supermarkets and petrol stations where our employees and contractors spend their money.
The Carmichael Project has been rigorously and exhaustively assessed by both the State and Federal governments and has all necessary approvals including indigenous land use agreements required for it to go ahead.
Numerous court processes have found the approvals that have been granted to the project are sound and that ample regulations, checks and balances are in place to give the public confidence that that mine, rail and port will be operated in a way that is safe and sustainable.
Adani - Empowering Communities
Adani - Making A Difference
Adani Australia is part of the Adani Group, a global leader in resources, logistics, infrastructure and energy. The Adani Group is among the world’s fastest-growing organisations of the past 25 years.
With a focus on nation-building, the Adani Group has invested more than $US40 billion in infrastructure initiatives in the past decade, including the world’s largest single-site solar generation plant in Tamil Nadu, and India’s first supercritical thermal power plant at Mundra, Gujarat.
Adani Australia’s businesses include resources, infrastructure, solar and agriculture, strengthening ties between Australia and India.
The Adani Group is one of India's leading business houses, with revenue of approximately $9.4 billion for the 2013-14 financial year. Adani is a globally integrated infrastructure player with businesses spanning coal trading, coal mining, oil and gas exploration, ports, multi-modal logistics, power generation and transmission, as well as gas distribution.
Adani entered the Australian market in 2010, with the intent to open Queensland’s Galilee Basin, unlocking the coal resources within. A unique aspect of the mine’s development is the ‘pit-to-plug’ strategy, insulating the coal from fluctuations in the global market, as well as capitalising on Adani’s infrastructure strengths and capabilities to build a multi-user rail line to the site.
Since then, Adani has expanded its investment into Australia with the acquisition of the Abbot Point Coal Terminal in 2011, the purchase of the Abbot Point BulkCoal Operating business in 2016 and the entry of the Adani Renewables business in 2016 with a focus on large-scale renewable energy projects.
The Carmichael mine, rail and port project has since been a vehicle to invest billions of dollars, both in the project and Queensland’s economy. With success comes responsibility, so we take care to reinvest in protecting and developing the communities that we operate within.
"To be a global leader in the integrated resource, logistics and energy business through sustainable, innovative and responsible value creation."
Adani’s vision is to be a global leader in the integrated resource, logistics and energy business through sustainable, innovative and responsible value creation. Supporting this vision is our commitment to building and operating our Australian projects to achieve long-term sustainable outcomes.

Adani recognises the importance of job creation and the delivery of economic benefit to regional Queensland. Through the Adani Regional Content Strategy (ARCS) program, Adani will provide employment, supply and contracting opportunities for regional workers and businesses to participate in Adani’s Carmichael Project.
The ARCS program has three key pillars:
1. Efficient Market
Identifying where the capability and capacity exists in the regional labour pool and supply chain to service the Carmichael project during both construction and operations.
Adani’s employment and sourcing strategy is to source from multiple towns across the state, building a long-term partnership with regional Queensland.
Our plan is to have three distinct project regions along with multiple project and procurement sourcing centres in surrounding areas. We are committed to ensuring that regional Queensland gains economic benefit, with full, fair and reasonable opportunity to win work across our projects.
Regional sourcing for the Carmichael project will be based around the 10 regional council areas represented below, with a wider Australian local sourcing approach also incorporated.
Adani recognises the importance of supporting jobs in regional Queensland. We have partnered with the uWorkIn job portal to establish a single point of employment contact for Adani and our suppliers and contractors to connect with workers who live in regional Queensland.
This will now be the official gateway for the various job opportunities that become available within the entire Adani Australia supply chain and our host communities. Adani Australia will not be utilising any other portals, nor will we ask you to pay for training or portal registration.
Please take the time to register your details on the Adani uWorkIn database. By registering, you will be automatically notified when jobs relating to our projects become available.
Adani Australia is committed to ensuring regional communities have a full, fair and reasonable opportunity to win work across the Adani Australia mine, rail, solar and port projects.
Adani Australia will be utilising the EconomX portal for registration of suppliers. By creating a profile, you will be registering your interest in the Adani Australia supply chain, and you will automatically receive notifications of opportunities as they arise, as well as general project updates.
We strongly believe that regional content is a shared responsibility between Adani and the economic development organisations of regional Queensland.
Regional Queensland and Adani have a strong future together. Over the past seven years we have worked hard to develop relationships with regional economic development organisations, community groups, council and charities. Together we can continue to work together and build partnerships for the future, ensuring that regional Queensland ultimately benefits.
