CME and member companies establish Bushfire Community Support Initiative

The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of WA (CME) and member companies will support families and communities affected by this week’s devastating Perth Hills bushfires.

CME Chief Executive Paul Everingham today announced the coordination of a CME Bushfire Community Support Initiative.

“The images of the devastation caused by these bushfires have had a profound impact on anyone who has seen them, in an area well known to the wider community,” Mr Everingham said.

“The CME Bushfire Community Support Initiative will directly support response, relief and recovery efforts for those impacted by the Perth Hills fires.

“Member companies have committed around $2.5 million in support funding so far, and it’s early days.

“We know we can’t replace what many of those people have lost but hopefully we can make things a little easier for them in the days, weeks and months to come.”

Chevron Australia, Minara Resources, Mt Gibson Iron Ore, Newmont Australia and Rio Tinto have already committed to making significant donations and it’s expected that a wide range of CME member companies will also contribute.
