ABP supports a number of environmental and local community groups across the regions where we operate.
Our objective is to work openly and cooperatively with community stakeholders in the interests of responsible forestry practices that deliver social, environmental and economic benefits.
We work closely with local government on matters such as plantation establishment, road infrastructure and other planning requirements. We play a key role in supporting fire prevention and management in the community by working collaboratively with landowners, neighbours, local brigades, local and state governments and other plantation managers. We also assist with local environmental projects such as revegetation and weed control by providing funding or in-kind support.
ABP is a significant economic contributor to the regions where we operate. We are a major employer and support many local contractors, service providers and businesses. We employ approximately 60 full time employees Australia-wide and use over 250 contractor businesses.
