Generating positive impact
Supporting and investing in communities is integral to the James Hardie culture. We strive to positively impact the people and families in the communities in which we operate and where our products are used.
Working in collaboration with departments across the company, our Director, Global Social Impact is responsible for developing and implementing our community engagement initiatives.
Over the past year, we revised our global giving strategy to better align with our business objectives, while continuing to enable specific local giving.
Our charitable giving and community engagement activities are organized into three pillars:
- 1. Safe, Resilient, Durable Shelter: We prioritize supporting families, and in turn our communities, in need of affordable safe housing.
- 2. Disaster Relief: When our communities are impacted by natural disasters, we work to show up with our products, time, and money to rebuild in partnership with local organizations and governments.
- 3. STEM & Manufacturing Education Scholarships & Engagement: We want to nurture the next generation of diverse people to help build and maintain resilient sustainable communities.
