CSBP is partnering with Perth NRM to deliver the CSBP Coastal Connections Challenge, a youth initiative for Perth's southern suburbs intended to raise awareness of coastal conservation, opportunities in STEM careers and the environment sector.

About CSBP

CSBP is Western Australia’s leading manufacturer and supplier of chemicals, fertilisers and related mining services to mining, agricultural and industrial sectors around the world.

It is a safe and reliable producer of Sodium Cyanide and explosive grade Ammonium Nitrate for the mining industry as well as a trusted manufacturer and supplier of fertiliser and agricultural services to Western Australian growers.

CSBP is part of Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers (WecCEF) Division. Wesfarmers is one of the nation’s largest employers with more than 100,000 employees.

West Australian energy provider, Kleenheat is also part of WesCEF and has previously partnered with Perth NRM.

About Our Partnership

WesCEF has supported Perth NRM’s Coast and Marine program over many years through Kleenheat, supporting localised, on-ground dune rehabilitation work in and around Kwinana.  In 2019 WesCEF approached Perth NRM about starting a broader and more ambitious project, with CSBP as the corporate partner.

After plans for 2020 were delayed due to the onset of coronavirus health restrictions, CSBP and Perth NRM are currently planning a new launch for the CSBP Coastal Connections Challenge in November 2020, with a two-day workshop scheduled for March 2021, bringing together youth, educators, mentors, industry, local government and beach lovers to encourage enquiry and engagement with coastal conservation.

The CSBP Coastal Connections Challenge is envisaged as an annual engagement program that empowers youth to design and deliver strategies for specific coastal projects, with opportunities to implement these ideas in the real world.

The long-term goal is to engage youth in coastal projects and develop a sense of empowered, evidence-based environmental stewardship.
