Creating destinations that reflect and support our communities

Our 42 Westfield destinations in Australia and New Zealand are places people visit for social connection and to access diverse retail experiences, products and services.

We aspire to be essential to people and their communities. An important part of us doing that is creating inclusive spaces and offering unique and vibrant experiences. We also invest in our local communities, creating human connections and supporting them to thrive.

We are proud of what we delivered in 2023.

Investing in our community

Over the past five years, we have invested $27 million into our local communities. In 2023, this investment included:

$4m for space in our destinations

We forego income for space in our destinations to enable local community and charitable organisations to engage directly with our customers, increase awareness and improve access to important services.

$1.25m in Westfield Local Hero grants

In 2023, we provided $1.25 million in grants to the local community organisations and groups representing our Westfield Local Heroes. The program discovers and recognises local individuals making a positive impact in the community and supports the work they do.

Scentre Group team members’ donations and volunteering

In 2023, our people donated 427 days of their time to volunteering with organisations. In addition, we match our team members' charitable donations dollar for dollar. Combined we donated $370,863 to 65 charities.

Unique and vibrant moments

We create meaningful moments that connect and celebrate our local communities. We hosted more than 16,100 centre events in our destinations throughout the year.

This included national partnership events and local community engagement initiatives, charity donation appeals, youth programs and Westfield Local Heroes events.

We also announced three strategic partnerships with leading brands that brought unique, highly sought after experiences to our Westfield destinations. These were Disney, Live Nation Entertainment and Netball Australia.

Access to container recycling facilities

To help support our communities to achieve their container recycling goals for cans and bottles, we have 15 reverse vending machines located across Westfield destinations in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. During the year, our communities recycled 47.3 million containers.

Looking to 2024 and beyond, we will continue to evolve our Westfield destinations to deliver what customers and communities want and need, while feeling safe, welcome and included.
