In the words of Our Bond: Our communities are our homes.
"Our success relies on communities supporting our business and products. In turn, we care for the environment, create wealth, respect local values and encourage involvement. Our strength is in choosing to do what is right."
Around the world BlueScope and its people are involved in the local community. For more about our recent activity in the community, visit our Community News Page.
In North America, the BlueScope Foundation is steered in its support of community service by the principles of Our Bond, realising that our business success relies on the support of the communities that we call home.
The Foundation provides funding support to over 90 different organisations across the US where BlueScope operates. The Foundation supports agencies based on the needs of our local communities, such as food pantries, youth development programs, domestic abuse and homeless shelters, technical scholarships at community colleges, arts organisations, and many other worthy charities that represent the BlueScope spirit of helping build our communities and support our neighbours.
Across BlueScope Buildings North America, employees participate in United Way volunteer events such as Day of Caring, school supply and holiday gift drives for area children in need, and many other activities in partnership with the local community. In addition to volunteer activities, the Company also donates to local fundraising campaigns, which help raise support to be distributed to non-profit agencies providing essential services to families in our communities.
