Adani Australia is committed to supporting the communities it operates. Since we entered the Australian market in 2010, we have been working with regional economic development organisations, community groups, councils and charities. Our success relies on the support of our partners.

In August 2018, we welcomed senior physics students from Moranbah State High School to our Rugby Run Solar Farm to discover how sunlight is converted to energy.
Adani Australia respects and recognises the Traditional Owners of the land of which the Carmichael mine, rail, renewables and port are located, the Barada Barna, Juru, Jangga, Birriah and Wangan and Jagalingou people.
Adani Australia is committed to creating sustainable employment and economic opportunities for Indigenous communities.
Our Indigenous Land Use Agreements and Cultural Heritage Management Plans support the development of skills and training as well as how areas of significance are preserved during construction and operations. These agreements have been in place since 2014 and will create multigenerational benefits for these groups.
We work with our Traditional Owners under the guidance of these formal agreements and plans, so that we respect the rights, history, future intentions and requests of the Indigenous People.
Our success is directly aligned with the support and advocacy from our partners. Since 2010, we have been working with regional development organisations, Chambers of Commerce, community groups and councils to support the communities in which we operate.
