The success of our business is closely aligned to the health and well-being of our employees and the communities in which we work. Recognising our responsibility to the broader community, we engage employees and support local communities and industry. Maintaining community relations helps Knauf to become a good corporate citizen and this is a step towards making our world a better place. Knauf supports local communities through national fundraising and participation in local events. Knauf has also supported charities such as Habitat for Humanity with donations of materials for housing projects for the needy.
Knauf Plasterboard manages our sites to meet our social and environmental responsibilities. In the event of an incident or emergency, procedures are in place and personnel are trained to manage and resolve issues effectively, including notifications to relevant authorities such as the EPA, local councils, WorkCover and emergency services. This includes communication with local communities and neighbours, to keep those potentially affected by an incident notified and up to date with outcomes, and ensure we operate safely and responsibly on our sites and with our local stakeholders.
