Community Investment

Fremantle Ports supports a wide range of organisations and initiatives in our catchment communities of Fremantle, Cockburn, Kwinana and Rockingham through our Community Investment Program.

Fremantle Ports has been part of the community for over 120 years and in that time, has built a reputation for being a trusted partner. We can’t be a successful port without the support of the community. That support comes from working with the community in areas where it matters most.

Maximising social outcomes is acknowledged in our corporate values and our business principles commit to building the capacity of our local catchment communities. Fremantle Ports operates in Fremantle, of course, but also has Outer Harbour operations in Cockburn Sound. The local communities in these geographic areas are a particular focus for Fremantle Ports.

This information is to help you understand what types of initiatives we support and why. We urge you to think broadly, rather than narrowly, about how Fremantle Ports might support you and why it should support you.

Our Community Investment Program has four focus areas:

Our Values:

  • Respect and integrity
  • Responsiveness and delivery
  • Sustainability
  • Safety and wellbeing
  • Continuous improvement and innovation

What are important to Fremantle Ports are Our People, Customers, Environment, Community and Success.‚Äč
