The Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) is proud to support a range of sponsorship initiatives including the following not-for-profit and charity programs.
Partnering with our local community
PBPL continues to work closely with local schools and environment groups to achieve positive environmental outcomes through its annual Community Grant Program.
In 2016, Make it Home Safely Inc received $5000 from the Community Grant program to launch a young driver education program, which has been implemented at Brisbane Bayside State College and Wynnum State High School with a total of 450 students in years 11 & 12 participating.
Nyree Mannion from Make It Home Safely Inc, said “The young driver education program enabled us to empower young people to create, communicate and implement safe driving practices to reduce road injuries and fatalities – Port of Brisbane’s funding paid for the publication of a twelve page interactive booklet and provided promotional materials to engage the students”.
Clean-Up Australia Day
In 2017, PBPL partnered with Tangalooma EcoMarines, B4C and Queensland Urban Utilities to take part in Clean-Up Australia Day.
Around 100 people participated in the clean-up and tree planting activities, which took place on part of the Port’s dedicated environmental areas, adjacent to the Moreton Bay Marine Park.
On the day, approximately 20 bags of litter was collected and 700 native trees were planted as part of PBPL’s ongoing revegetation program.
PBPL will continue to support worthy environment initiatives like these in the future to ensure we are contributing to the community in a sustainable and responsible manner.
Volunteer & PBPL Charity
Employee Volunteer Program
PBPL is committed to making a positive and meaningful contribution to Wynnum, Manly and the surrounding areas. As part of its Employee Volunteer Program, each full-time staff member is given the opportunity to undertake one day of volunteer work per year.
Each year, members of our staff raise funds for a nominated charity, and PBPL matches employee contributions. This year's charity is Rural Aid Australia.
