Community Engagement

MMA is committed to making a positive contribution to the communities in which it operates by creating mutual opportunities that support economic growth and social wellbeing.

To support this goal MMA strives to:

  • Invest in local community projects that have a positive and sustainable benefit;
  • Seek business opportunities with local suppliers and subcontractors;
  • Strive to be good corporate citizens;
  • Develop long term relationships with local Indigenous communities in order to increase indigenous participation within our workforce and promote opportunities for training and development; and
  • Create and maintain cross cultural awareness throughout the business.

Community Sponsorship

MMA is active in engaging with the communities in the regional areas of Dampier, Karratha and Broome where our main Australian operations are located.

MMA has a regional sponsorship committee, which reviews sponsorship applications and allocates funds to a range of community events, charities and sporting groups in these regions.

MMA also runs a Target 365 rewards programme, whereby business units who achieve exceptional safety performance are given the opportunity to donate monetary rewards to registered charities. In the 2015 financial year, over $45,000 was donated to charities including the Salvation Army, Red Cross, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Leukaemia Foundation, the Autism Association of WA and Ronald McDonald House. To date, the MMA Offshore Target 365 reward and recognition program has donated over $85,000 to charity.

Local and Indigenous Participation

MMA is committed to delivering lasting social value to the communities in which it operates, through local and Indigenous participation.

MMA has comprehensive Australian Industry Participation (“AIP”) and Indigenous Enterprise Participation (“IEP”) plans with meaningful targets in place for the sourcing of local and indigenous goods and services. MMA is also engaged in innovative collaborations with Aboriginal businesses, leveraging MMA’s global sourcing expertise to develop new Indigenous business opportunities.

MMA was also instrumental in the formation of the Local Contracting Alliance (“LCA”) Group which facilitates new contracting opportunities for Indigenous businesses, whilst assisting companies to achieve their local content targets. Since its inception in late 2013, over 50 new contracts have been enabled through the LCA network.

MMA’s local content philosophy is guided by the three tenets of cost, timeliness and quality. Importantly, MMA actively supports local businesses in a competitive global environment whilst ensuring the best outcome for the Company.
