Alcoa Anglesea Power Station continued its
reinvigorated community engagement
program with the launch of its new bi-monthly
community newsletter, Alcoa Anglesea News.
The first edition of Alcoa Anglesea News
invited over 2800 Anglesea ratepayers and 50
key stakeholders to take part in a number of
engagement opportunities including site tours,
the Community Consultation Network (CCN),
receiving future editions of the newsletter,
Anglesea’s monthly Environment Report and
CCN minutes, and becoming involved in the
site’s highest priority environmental project for
2008 – the Sulphur Dioxide (SO2)
Management Project.
Following a positive community response of
about 8%, a tour day was organised for
Saturday 28 June 2008. Around 30
permanent and non-permanent Anglesea
residents attended where they were taken on
a general tour of the Anglesea site and an
SO2 info session was also held for interested
residents. Lunch was also provided which
gave residents and Alcoa employees a
chance to meet and discuss the Anglesea
business in a social setting.
The responses to the newsletter have helped
the business to identify how Anglesea
residents would like information conveyed to
them and allowed engagement with a wider
range of residents - both permanent and nonpermanent - on aspects of Alcoa Anglesea’s
operations that are of interest to them.
Through the newsletter, Alcoa Anglesea hopes
to further engage with local stakeholders and
provide even more opportunities to become
informed about different areas of its
operations.

OUR ENVIRONMENT AND OUR EMPLOYEE
Welcome to Anglesea Dave - what is your role here?
As Community Relations Officer, I am responsible for a range of
community engagement activities and events, as well as
managing the Community Consultation Network (CCN). I
manage sponsorship programs which deliver benefit to the
community and to the company’s business objectives as well as
local government and media relations in the Surf Coast region. I
also keep the plant employees informed of community relations
and key communications activities.
As a CRO, do you have much interaction with
environmental issues? Much of my community engagement
focuses around environmental matters. These include air
emissions, water, waste and land management, as well as
community impact. I also manage Anglesea’s Environment
Improvement Plan process with key external stakeholders.
SO2 has been tagged the highest priority
envir
onmental pr
oject for this year
environmental
project
year,, what does that
mean for you? We are currently engaging broadly with the
community and key stakeholders and informing them on how
they can be involved in our business. This includes receiving the
Alcoa Anglesea newsletter or this monthly environment report;
becoming involved in our CCN or the SO2 management project.
