Partnering for positive social and environmental impact

Conservation Volunteers Australia develops partnerships with the leading Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Social Licence teams in Australia to strengthen community and environmental resilience across the country and enable impact at scale. 


A bridge between partners, communities and the environment

We are committed to making a long-lastingimpactby working with our partners through our Campaignsto take on the biggest conservation challenges and influence positive change within communities across Australia. 

Our five Campaigns reflect and respond to the environmental and societal issues that are front of mind for Australian communities, are priorities for community leaders and governments and are recognised globally within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) notably:

Meeting mutual objectives for CSR, Social Licence & ESG

We believe that forging mutually beneficial partnerships that are built on shared values, brand alignment and common goals, can move the world forward.

To do this, we work with our partners to collaboratively develop Campaign Projects that deliver social and environmental impact by engaging the community at scale. We measure our impacts and provide evidence in the form of field data, thorough reporting and powerful storytelling. 

Increasingly, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs are contributing towards Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) outcomes. Some of our partners have already discovered that their CSR programs are a powerful tool for operationalising ESG profiles and objectives.

By supporting a Campaign that aligns with your strategic objectives, you will also be providing critical funding towards our on-ground and in-community work, while enhancing your sustainable reputation and engaging with your stakeholders – employees, customers, communities and shareholders – who are critical to the long-term success of your organisation.
