Fuelling the community for 65 years

The Viva Energy Community Legend awards program is just one way the Geelong Refinery supports our local community.


Fuelling good deeds

We encourage our people to volunteer and help raise funds for our community partners during Good Deeds Week, and match whatever they raise to double their donation.

Fuelling future AFL stars

We’re proud to sponsor the Geelong Cats Next Generation Academy, which aims to increase AFL participation within the indigenous and multi-cultural population of Geelong.

Fuelling women in sport

We’re proud to support the Geelong Cats AFLW team, helping to promote female participation in the AFL with ongoing sponsorship.

Fuelling science education

We're a sponsor of Science Alive! the largest interactive and educational science exhibitions for kids of all ages in Australia.

Fuelling a sustainable future

We recycle, reuse or repurpose most of our waste at the Geelong Refinery. The native trees we planted around the refinery are thriving on compost made from one waste product.

Fuelling safety

Every day at the Viva Energy Geelong Refinery, we’re investing in the safety of our people, our community and the local environment. It’s our number one priority.

Fuelling young careers

Apprenticeships at the refinery provide young people with valuable skills training and job opportunities that they may not have found anywhere else.

Fuelling manufacturing

700 people work to help us supply over 50 percent of Victoria’s fuel. We also produce jet fuel and Avgas, bitumen for roads and solvents for Australian industries.

Working with our local communities

Our community goal is – being valued by our people, communities and customers, for our genuine efforts towards positive social impact.  We’re committed to giving back to our local communities through our Community Program, which focuses on how mobility can enable more equitable outcomes in our community.

The Program supports a range of projects Nationally and in the Geelong area and includes partnerships with CareFlight, Racing Together and with local organisations such as Northern Futures, the Geelong AFL football club and the support of 16 local grassroots community organisations.

We also offer community support grants and create simple and inspiring ways for our people to contribute to positive social change.

You may also see us in the community through our Reconciliation Action Plan and the support of local grassroots community organisations.
