Supporting our community

Powering better journeys for all Australians

The Ampol Foundation, established in 2019, is the vehicle through which we deliver our corporate social responsibility activities. 

As a proud and independent Australian company, we are committed to being a positive contributor to communities and using our network and employee base to improve the lives of all Australians. We are also committed to delivering our company purpose, Powering better journeys, today and tomorrow.

The focus of the Ampol Foundation is guided by two pillars: youth education and safety. As Australia’s leading transport fuels provider that exists in hundreds of communities across the country, we are passionate about keeping our people and customers safe. We are also dedicated to improving access to education amongst disadvantaged youth and believe that investment in this area has a long-lasting impact on society.

To support our strategy, in 2020, we announced new partnerships with The Smith Family and Surf Life Saving Australia. These new partners complement our longstanding partnerships with the Clontarf Foundation, the Stars Foundation and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, along with our national Ampol Best All Rounder Award program.

Volunteering with Harristown Clontarf Academy

In February, some of our Lytton Lubricant Team connected with the Harristown Clontarf Academy to build, fill and palletise oyster shells cages. These cages were taken into Moreton Bay to assist in rebuilding the natural shellfish reefs. The teams finished 2.5 pallets of cages, providing approximately 80,000 new homes for shellfish in the bay.
