Our Communities

As an emerging leader in sustainable energy development in Australia, we understand that our long-term success goes hand-in-hand with enhancing, empowering and encouraging the broader well-being of the communities in which we operate.

We seek to contribute to the communities in which we are operating within by supporting initiatives that are important to our stakeholders and firmly believe in genuine engagement to encourage mutual capacity building.


To effectively establish ourselves in our communities we encourage the undertaking of open and accountable engagement processes and endeavour to interact closely with our stakeholders to improve the relevance, engagement and effectiveness of our corporate social responsibilities.

It’s through this engagement and interaction with our host communities that we develop a deeper awareness of the local social context, allowing us to keep residents more effectively informed while taking advantage of their local knowledge to create opportunities for community investment through community programs, services, and events. Vena Energy propose to undertake these activities as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, which is focused on education, health, environment & society, and infrastructure development.

We are always open to investigating community investment opportunities with our host communities, should you wish to highlight a potential opportunity please provide your details in the form below.
