At Queensland Rail, we recognise and embrace our responsibilities to the communities in which we operate. Along with our commitment to safety, we also strive to have a positive impact through our business operations and with the way we engage with local communities, customers, suppliers, employees and the society at large.
Queensland Rail has built a strong reputation for supporting the communities in which we operate. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team is committed to building on this proud tradition.
Along with providing a CSR framework for the company to work towards, the CSR group looks after the following key initiatives on a company-wide basis:
The CSR group, through employee consultation, has established a number of quality, high-level partnerships with not for profit organisations to be supported through activities such as fundraising, small scale sponsorship opportunities and payroll giving programs. Employees are given many opportunities to take part in all community partnership initiatives.
Our sponsorship mission is to establish relevant partnerships that underpin our iconic position within Queensland and strengthen our relationships with key communities.
Historical, heritage information and community requests
Queensland Rail is a custodian of a story that extends all the way back to 1865. Our history is a living part of the organisation. The railways in Queensland were one of the major industries of the state, and with that much of the economic and social development of Queensland was associated with this iconic organisation.
Queensland Rail can access many collections throughout the state including the hundred year old QR Historical Collection at the Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich which helps bring our story to life.
