Supporting Communities and the Environment
Cue continues to support the local communities in which we operate and are proud to support our partners in their community activities. Through our Capturing Local Economic Benefits Policy Cue aims to actively promote, and encourage our partners to promote, opportunities for economic benefits to be realised locally and regionally.
During the year, surplus office equipment, including portable offices from Cue’s Mahakam Hilir field office was donated to a number of community schools and kindergartens in the Sambutan village area, East Kalimantan.
The Sampang joint venture provided funding for a number of activities in the Camplong District including the construction of sanitation facilities, road paving and building irrigations wells. Fishing equipment, including nets and scales, were also donated to a number of local villages as part of Medco Energi Sampang Community Development program.
OMV NZ, the operator of the Maari field actively supports a number of community initiatives in the Taranaki region, including large scale tree planting programme in Taranaki and the Wairarapa, recycling and tree planting in Taranaki Schools and WISE better Homes and job training.
The WA-359-P joint venture supported the Native ARC (Animal Rehabilitation Centre) in Perth, and contributed to the Indigenous Preferential Procurement Programs Research Project, led by the University of Melbourne, which measured the economic impacts of Indigenous Procurement Policies and assisted in understanding the contribution Indigenous businesses make to the Australian Economy.
Cue offices have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by replacing ageing IT infrastructure with lower power consumption equipment and installing low-energy LED lighting. We have begun to offset emissions from our Melbourne and Jakarta offices by planting trees.
