Hydro Tasmania has a long-standing culture of playing an active role in the communities in which we operate and where our people and their families live and work. Our history demonstrates over a century of contributing to the cultural, social and economic fabric of Tasmania. Now, through our major projects, consulting and retail services, philanthropy and employee volunteering our community extends from Tasmania across Australia and includes international partnerships.
We employ hundreds of Tasmanians and provide business to many Tasmanian firms. Our employee volunteering program supports community organisations by giving our time and sharing our knowledge. In addition to providing financial support, our in-kind support through water releases allows recreational activities at local, national and international level to be held in Tasmania. We provide infrastructure for recreation such as walking tracks, boat ramps, camping grounds, jetties and pontoons.
We work with many special interest groups, such as, the fishing and paddling community, farmers and landowners, cultural and heritage groups, industry peers, partners and customers to make sure our business operates in the best interests of our owners, the people of Tasmana.
