Community Engagement and Social Impact

We are committed to developing and maintaining strong links with the community, not just in the vicinity of the airport, but across Sydney and NSW.

We actively engage with local communities and organisations about airport operations, proposed development and future planning.

Visit the Sustainability report and the Stakeholder engagement section of this website for more information.

Our purpose is to make Sydney proud every day and our social impact strategy connects to that purpose. The outcome of our strategy is that our contribution to the community increases and we divert our spend for good. We’re focused on being purpose-led across three areas; our people, procurement and partners. Across these three streams we have set targets to achieve by 2024.

  • Increase our contribution to the community by 10% each year
  • Increase our annual procurement with Indigenous businesses and social enterprises by 10% each year

Within our strategy, three pillars guide our investment in the community:

Live local

Leading and learning
