SOCIAL AND HUMAN CAPITAL

Occupational Health and Safety

Health and safety performance is a central focus at Jadestone. The business objective is to provide a safe and rewarding work environment for Jadestone staff, and to maintain an exceptional health and safety performance wherever the Company operates.

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.

Supporting Public School Libraries in Vietnam

  • Jadestone identified an opportunity to support early education in one of the poorest remote areas of Vietnam.
  • We supported the development of three public school libraries in the central highlands of Vietnam: Kroongpa – Gia Lai province, Phu Mo – Phu Yen province, and Phu Hai – Binh Thuan province.
  • Our hope is that with this sort of resource at their disposal, we can improve the quality of local primary education, as well as encourage more children to stay in school.

Cash for Containers

  • Montara facility has been involved in ‘Cash for Containers’ since 2015
  • Personnel collect water bottles, aluminium cans and soft drink bottles used on the facility to be donated to the Down Syndrome Association of Northern Territory (Australia)
  • Association workers remove and count the lids and receive Cash for Containers donations equating to about $6,000 a year

Plastic Free July

  • A grass roots commitment to improving sustainability within Jadestone
  • Initiatives developed in all country offices and facilities to reduce waste (especially plastic)
  • Perth office increased its volume of recycled waste by >30% and reduced landfill by 50%

NETTS Apprenticeship Programme

  • Jadestone Australia was pleased to welcome two 3rd year Process Plant specialist apprentices to our offshore team in July 2020 as part of the National Energy Technician Training Scheme (NETTS).
  • Their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn was an excellent fit with the Jadestone culture, and through this programme we were able to provide plenty of exposure and real-life experience in the offshore environment to further their education.
  • Jadestone has registered with the NETTS programme for 2021, where we will select apprentices across Process, Mechanical, and Electrical disciplines. Exiting times ahead!

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.
