Alcoa is a principal partner for Perth NRM in the Swan Alcoa Landcare Program (SALP) along with the State Government. We also have a long-standing relationship with Alcoa’s Kwinana Refinery, working on the restoration of Challenger Beach in Cockburn Sound.
Alcoa of Australia Limited (Alcoa) is owned 60 per cent by Alcoa Corporation and 40 per cent by Alumina Limited. The Australian operations represent one of the world’s largest integrated bauxite mining, alumina refining and aluminium smelting systems and add value to Australia’s local, state and national economies at every stage. Part of this are the two Alcoa Farmlands sites in Western Australia (Pinjarra and Wagerup), and a alumina refinery and dedicated port facility in Kwinana.
Throughout the world, sustainability drives Alcoa to minimise impacts and maximise value.
About our Partnership
Since 1998, Alcoa and the State Government (Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions) have contributed funds each year toward the Swan Alcoa Land Partnership, delivered with Perth NRM.
The key objectives of SALP are to restore habitats in our rivers, wetlands, coastal foreshores and in our bush land; to protect and enhance the quality of ground water and surface water in our river systems and wetlands; and to improve ecological linkages across our region.
To date, SALP has delivered over $9M to community groups working on environmental programs in the Swan region.
Alcoa is also an active participant in Perth NRM’s Coastal + Marine program, providing sponsorship, volunteers and stewardship of the Challenger Beach Site adjacent to the Alcoa Kwinana Refinery.
Swan Alcoa Landcare Partnership
The Swan Alcoa Landcare Program (SALP) is a Community Landcare Grants Program Funded by Alcoa of Australia and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (Parks and Wildlife).
It aims to protect, restore and manage natural assets with consideration to a broad ecological context, by funding the community to enhance and restore critical habitat and ecological linkages within the Swan Region.
