The Pilbara will sustain major wealth generation for Australians for hundreds of years. The Pilbara therefore can and must host long term, fully sustainable and high quality living communities.
Fortescue is supporting the Western Australian Government's Pilbara Cities vision by way of its commitment to a residential workforce at Port Hedland, local employment, training and employment of Aboriginal people and providing opportunities for local businesses to increase capability at various locations across the Pilbara.
Fortescue and Hockey Australia introduced the National Indigenous Hockey Program to local children at Roebourne Primary School in late August.
The Program will see the world's number one hockey team and Olympic gold medallists, the Kookaburras, establish one of international sport's most inclusive games, hockey, in the Pilbara Indigenous community and the wider Pilbara community.
The Kookaburra's visits to Roebourne and the Pilbara region three times a year for the next five years will be sponsored and facilitated by Fortescue.
