James Hardie Australia are proud to announce a new partnership with Habitat for Humanity Australia to support their mission that everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live and to align with our own purpose of Building a Better Future for All™.

Building a Better Future for All™.

The partnership brings together James Hardie’s experience as a world leader in the manufacturing of fibre cement building solutions, with the expertise of Habitat for Humanity, one of the world’s largest not-for-profit housing providers for low-income families. Their shared vision to help build sustainable communities comes as many Australians are struggling to find affordable, safe and sustainable housing.

President James Hardie APAC John Arneil said: “We are proud to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity to improve access to housing for those who need it most. By providing Hardie™ fibre cement product for the Habitat for the Humanity Australia building program, we hope to build a better future for vulnerable members of our community.”

Habitat for Humanity Australia Chief Executive Officer, Nicole Stanmore says: “We are delighted to be partnering with James Hardie to help us deliver better housing solutions for vulnerable groups and low-income families. James Hardie’s support will improve the lives of countless families fleeing domestic violence and assist us to provide solutions for families that need a safe home so they can build a better future. Through their contributions and employee volunteering, James Hardie will be helping women and children escaping domestic violence and people facing homelessness.”

Supporting vulnerable members of the community

This partnership will deliver our trusted, Australian made Hardie™ fibre cement products for Habitat initiatives, providing assurance that they can deliver durable, low maintenance and beautiful home exteriors. The partnership includes opportunities for James Hardie staff to participate in the Brush with Kindness volunteering program, and our Marketing team recently painted and refurbished crisis accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence as a kick off of this effort. Both organisations will collaborate and explore a range of opportunities to build better futures for our communities.
