Community Benefits Framework

Community benefits

Delivering enduring legacies for our communities with the Community Benefits Framework.

Update on our Community Benefits Framework

While our projects will bring significant long-term economic, environmental and social benefits, we recognise that this comes with disruption for local communities during investigation and construction. Our goal is to deliver the best outcomes for local communities and all Queenslanders, now and for generations to come.   

This is where community benefits comes in.   

The Queensland Hydro Community Benefits Framework is currently being finalised and will be released soon. 

About the framework

Purpose, values and strategic priorities

The Framework outlines our approach to planning and delivering benefits for the communities in which we operate. It will include our vision, shared values and strategic priorities for initiative selection to inform our Community Benefits Program.

With your input, the Framework is currently being finalised. When launched, it will be a tool that guides us in delivering meaningful initiatives as part of our wider community benefit sharing structure.
