CITIC Pacific is a socially responsible organisation that contributes to the community by supporting and sponsoring activities such as charitable work, education, anti-drug and anti-smoking programmes, sports, culture and the arts in Hong Kong, Mainland China and other locations.
CITIC Pacific believes that giving young people opportunities to improve their future through the acquisition of knowledge and skills is the best way to support the long term development of the community. In Hong Kong, CITIC Pacific has worked closely with the Labour Department and The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups on the Path Builders Training project which offers workplace attachments and training placements that can lead to permanent placements.
CITIC Pacific Mining has implemented a Work Ready Programme in Australia which provides graduates with systematic training prior to taking up a job. CITIC Pacific Mining has also entered into a three year partnership with the Clontarf Foundation to organise education-based programmes that support Aboriginal boys and young men in the Roebourne and Karratha communities close to our mine site.
CITIC Pacific Mining recognizes the importance of community relationships in the area in which it operates and believes it has a responsibility and role to protect the indigenous heritage. It has established a heritage team which has conducted a series of surveys across the project site and ensured the salvage of heritage material. The team has also fulfilled obligations under our Indigenous Land Use Agreements to ensure relationships remain strong with the indigenous people in the area. These relationships are further strengthened by the training and employment opportunities which the project provides.

CITIC Pacific and its subsidiaries are long term supporters of the Community Chest of Hong Kong through continuous donations and participation in the Chest’s campaigns and fund-raising activities. The group has also been an active supporter of Oxfam fund-raising and has contributed to earthquake relief in Sichuan and Taiwan.
