Community Partnerships
It is Alcoa’s aim to ensure the communities where we operate have networks that create opportunities for people, institutions and business to participate more fully in the economic, social and cultural areas of our community.

Through our Partnering Stronger Communities Program, Alcoa Point Henry forms partnerships with community organisations with a shared vision to strengthen the communities in which we live and work.  The program incorporates financial sponsorship and in-kind support such as employee volunteering.

Alcoa Point Henry has long term partnerships with Geelong organisations across five key areas.  Within each of these areas are partnerships with local organisations that are all committed to enhancing the sustainability of our local community.
