Environment

Belmont 16s recognises its responsibilities to the environment and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint.  We strive to become a sustainable business.

Our objective:

To responsibly and sustainably conduct our Club business and to engender an environmental focus into everything we do and everyone we support.

We plan to achieve this objective by reducing baseline emissions via energy efficiency actions or carbon offsets through the efficient use of:

  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Water
  • Fugitive emissions from refrigerants
  • Disposal of waste and products at end of life [non recyclable]
  • Other fuels consumed on site and for business purposes [diesel, petrol]

Further, the Club intends to communicate ongoing strategies and results to Staff, Club Members and the community, and to fully engage all parties to assist in this important sustainability effort.

 

Sponsorship

Belmont 16s makes a significant contribution to the local community, and while 2020 ClubGRANTS applications have closed, Belmont 16s provides financial and in kind support all year round outside of this formal process.

Alternatively submissions for sponsorship and donations from the Club must be submitted in writing and addressed to:

The Board of Directors, PO Box 484, Belmont NSW 2280

ClubGRANTS

Clubs were created as mutual organisations through which communities could provide facilities that were otherwise beyond their means. The ClubGRANTS scheme covers activities that are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. Although the scheme is is a requirement of regulations, each year participating clubs voluntarily exceed the minimum requirements.

This year licensed clubs in Lake Macquarie contributed $335,880 through the ClubGRANTS scheme category 1 funding. These funds assist non-profit community groups in their delivery of projects and services that support local disadvantaged communities.

Applications for ClubGRANTS commence in February of each year. For more information on how to apply visit ClubsNSW.

2020 ClubGRANTS recipients

 

Belmont 16s has recognised that there is a greater need for funding to be allocated to local grass roots, community and not for profit groups in our area.

From this we have developed our 2021 “Helping Hands” Community support initiative.

We understand that there is a diverse range of causes that are important to our Members and because of that – We want this 2021 Helping Hands Program to be exclusively to Member nomination

Belmont 16s will contribute $20,000 to four local groups to help them achieve their 2021 vision.

We simply ask that in the month of July our Members nominate a local charitable organisation, sporting group, community group or program that you feel could utilise $5000.

You can nominated as many different groups as you like, we have then charged our Belmont 16s Team in voting for the top nominations to each receive $5000. To make a nomination, simply fill out the form below and submit.
