Corporate & Social Responsibility

ERM Power is committed to being a good corporate citizen. We are conscious of the impact of our energy business on society and we actively look for ways to give back and make a positive contribution.

Our approach includes advocating for our customers in the policy arena, championing diversity in our business, looking for ways to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment and supporting a range of charitable causes that help make a difference to communities.

Leadership

In a complex and dynamic regulatory environment ERM Power looks to take opportunities to effectively inform and influence policy makers towards conditions favourable to enduring national energy policy which supports the community, investors, customers and the business.

Policy Environment

Over the past year policy makers have focused on bringing together energy and climate policy through the development of the National Energy Guarantee (NEG). There has also been a continued attention on transparency in the retail market.

Leadership Principles

ERM Power maintains a strong principled approach to advocacy. Priority principles include enduring, bipartisan national energy policy, an efficient and orderly transition to a low emissions energy sector, competitive and technology neutral policies, and supporting both supply and demand side measures to help customers.

Industry Engagement

Executives and regulatory specialists actively participate in advocacy and government relations opportunities. ERM Power also utilises bodies such as the Australian Industry Group and the Energy Efficiency Council to amplify its voice across the sector.

EQUALITY & DIVERSITY

A workforce representative of the community better supports diversity of thought, creative problem solving and the development of products and services. ERM Power continues to support diversity through a wide range of objectives, initiatives and policies. A comprehensive review is available here.

COMMUNITY & PARTNERSHIPS

We believe strongly in giving back to the communities in which we operate. Our sponsorship program is driven by the interests and passions of our staff and customers, and we support a range of initiatives and charities around Australia that help make a difference to society.

ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY

As a diversified energy company, we recognise the potential for our business to both burden and protect the natural environment. For this reason, we’re committed to building a bright, sustainable future through our focus on energy solutions and support of renewable energy options.
