Our economic contribution in FY22

We contribute in many ways, but one of the most fundamental is the economic contribution we provide through jobs, payments to suppliers, taxes, royalties, dividends and social investment.

We remain one of Australia's largest taxpayers, with an effective tax rate of 33.9%.

We expect to fund around 10% of all company tax in Australia in FY223.
