  • Social Responsibility

    As part of the Carmichael Project, Adani seeks to make positive contributions to the community, and recognises that proactive community relations will provide benefits for both the business and the affected community. Or focus has been on the development of social impact management strategies and a community investment framework.


    Adani has developed Social Impact Management Strategies (SIMS) across five key areas


    1. Community and Stakeholder Engagement

    2. Housing and Accommodation

    3. Workforce Management

    4. Local Business and Industry Content

    5. Health and Community Wellbeing


    The purpose of the SIMS is to identify the actions Adani and its contractors will take to mitigate potential social impacts, or enhance social opportunities, arising from the Project


    The SIMS are adaptive management strategies that will continue to be developed and refined as required through the annual monitoring and reporting process and in consultation with government, community and key stakeholders


    The Community & Stakeholder Engagement SIMS includes measures to ensure all Project stakeholders have access to up-to-date and accurate information about the Project, and receive timely responses to their issues and enquiries.


    Community investment is a core part of how companies manage their activities. Adani is actively building community investment into its overall business and planning process. This investment is based on long-term community development principles which include:

    • Support projects that encourage community self-sufficiency and sustainability

    • Focus on achieving genuine outcomes for communities

    • Provide a flexible and proactive approach

    • Be visible and transparent

    • Enhance social return on investment through strategic reviews of outcomes


    In the Carmichael Project area, Adani will aim to broaden the socio-economic benefits of the Project through a community investment program; and will seek to do this in a transparent and open manner. Community investment for the Carmichael Project will align with Adani’s core values.

    • Courage – we shall embrace new ideas and businesses

    • Trust – we shall believe in our employees and other stakeholders

    • Commitment – we shall stand by our promises and adhere to high standard of business
