Mark Steinert, CEO and Managing Director, Stockland

This year has demonstrated just how important it is for big business to be connected to the communities they operate in.

After 12 months of bushfires, floods, pandemics, isolation and economic hardship, we have a responsibility to give back and support the towns and cities around the country that are finally finding their feet again.

At Stockland, our purpose is that ‘we believe there is a better way to live’. Our mantra, our work and ultimately our responsibility is linked to the health of the communities we create and the people who live in them.

I’m proud to endorse this submission, knowing the contributions we’ve made to the lives of thousands of Australians this year.

This is more than our responsibility, it’s something we believe in and is core to our success.
