Our Stakeholders

Jadestone’s overarching business strategy and contribution towards a sustainable world is to ensure the most efficient use of existing facilities to derive the greatest possible benefits for all stakeholders. Jadestone openly communicates with people and organisations which may be affected by business activities. Going beyond the legislated requirements to engage, Jadestone seeks to develop close and long- lasting relationships with its stakeholders and encourages ongoing dialogue.

Water tanks

  • As part of Jadestone’s ongoing engagement with communities in the U Minh district in the Ca Mau province of Vietnam, our team identified challenges for local families accessing consistent supplies of clean, fresh water. Water provision can be sporadic in the region, especially during the dry season.
  • By providing high quality water storage tanks, over 50 families in the region now have a solution.
  • Our work in Vietnam is focused on helping the development and success of the region by providing clean supplies of energy. We go beyond that though to engage with our communities to ensure we play a positive role at a local level.

RUOK?

  • Jadestone Australia  was pleased to participate in the 2021 R U OK? day at its Perth office for the second year in a row.
  • R U OK? is a suicide prevention charity that aims to start life-changing conversations by creating a more connected world. The organisation aims to engage as many people as possible in a safe and inspiring way, and we’re proud to be ambassadors toward that endeavour.
  • Our objective is to help our team learn simple but effective ways to be more connected with one another and the world around them, and to raise awareness of mental health issues.
