Seven West Media’s Sustainability Pillars

Our sustainability framework focuses on four pillars, each of which is aligned to our stakeholders’ expectations, our values as a business, and our ability to achieve meaningful outcomes.

CH7 Opportunities for future generations trans Opportunities for future generations focuses on our work to nurture the aspirations of and create clear pathways for young Australians. We have a long history of fundraising for children’s health services and medical research, helping to ensure every child is given the best possible start.

CH7 Environmental awareness trans We bring awareness to environmental issues by harnessing the power of our platforms to highlight important environmental matters. It’s also about striving to further reduce our own environmental footprint.
