Giving back through community support
We believe that everyone has a role to play in community support and a responsibility to actively contribute to and support environmental sustainability, making our world a better place.
At Unico we have two initiatives the Unico Community Fund aimed at supporting the local community and the Unico Conservation Foundation focused on marine sustainability and education.
Our community supported projects
A commitment to giving back, helping others in need, protecting our environment and being active in the community is an important part of Unico’s culture and something that we take seriously.
That’s why the Unico Community Fund works with community support partners in Australia and developing countries on locally based development projects in the areas of sustainable environment, income generation, self-reliance, education and training. We believe these key focus areas are vital in creating more sustainable communities, environments and a healthier world.
The Unico Conservation Foundation has a long and proud history of supporting projects that protect the marine environment.
This commitment was inspired by a family trip on an Earthwatch Expedition in 2002 for Geoff and Denise Illing. They were impressed with the work that they saw and it transformed their way of thinking in regards to marine conservation. It inspired them to think about greater actions and other ways in which they could contribute to building more sustainable oceans. Projects include:
- Saving Philippines Reefs
- Alan White Library
- Coral Sea Monitoring
- Melbourne Down Under.
