The CSR Top 10 Australia are (in alphabetical order):

The Annual Review also shows that the Sustainable Development Goals are gathering pace. Companies are using them to inform business strategy as well as sustainability strategy and commitment is coming from the highest levels of the organisations. The top two Goals being addressed by companies are Gender Equality and Good Health and Well-Being. The most challenging goals to address are Climate Action and Gender Equality.
“Internally this year we have further developed our culture by fitting our CSR philosophy, the Abergeldie Way, into the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This gives our staff the opportunity to learn about the Goals and come up with innovative ideas on ways we can add to them. We hope that by using this framework we will encourage other businesses to think about their impact on the sustainability of the world. This has been best reflected in the partnerships we have developed with key water authorities to improve the efficient use and re-use of water to maximize natural water flows in our river systems” says Abergeldie CEO Greg Taylor.
