Decmil is a responsible business, and that means we are accountable for all our actions – socially, ethically and environmentally.
In addition to providing local employment and service opportunities, we support a range of ongoing initiatives that help create healthy, vibrant and cohesive communities.
Our aim is to make a broad and meaningful contribution to the communities we operate in by engaging in activities such as charity events, corporate friendships, charity partnerships, volunteering and donating. We are also pleased to maintain a longstanding Corporate Social Responsibility that helps people in need, encourages social cohesion, and supports local communities.
Project Based Initiatives
Decmil is always looking for ways to engage with and improve the communities in which we operate. This is particularly the case in remote areas where our projects are based.
Our social responsibility mandate ensures that every project we undertake has a core component that focusses on giving back to local communities.
Over the years Decmil people have undertaken a range of activities and initiatives including organised charity events, upgrades to community and social infrastructure and the donation of sporting equipment and educational supplies.
Staff Charity Events
At Decmil we encourage our team members to participate in company organised charity events such as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (Cancer Council), World’s Greatest Shave (Leukaemia Foundation), City to Surf (Activ) and Bridge to Brisbane (various charities).
We also encourage staff-driven events and activities along with volunteering opportunities, supporting these by contributing or donating dollar matching funds.
Starlight Children’s Foundation
While health professionals focus on treating the illness, the Starlight Foundation is there to lift the spirits of children, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and simply be kids.
Working with the Foundation on a national partnership arrangement, we raise money for the foundation and assist with donating ‘experiences’ to seriously ill children. We proudly sponsor the Five Chefs Dinner in WA and QLD, as well as providing volunteers to assist in raising money for this wonderful organisation.
beyondblue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in the community.
Decmil is extremely pleased to have entered into a corporate friendship with beyondblue, and we enjoy actively fundraising that helps to raise awareness and understanding of mental illness, empowers people to seek help, and supports their recovery, management and resilience.
