Good Deeds

Each year since 2016, Viva Energy has encouraged its employees to do a good deed for a charity or their local community as part of Good Deeds week. Good Deeds is a global initiative that unites people from over 100 countries each year to do good deeds for the benefit of others and the planet Viva Energy has embraced the concept, extending Good Deeds Day into a Good Deeds week.

In 2019, our staff participated in 843 activities (representing around 70 percent of the workforce), completing 1018 Good Deeds across the country. These efforts raised $11,164 which Viva Energy matched, giving a range of community partners more than $22,000 in funding.

Good Deeds Week this year is from 23-29 March so look out on our Twitter [@VivaEnergy_au] and LinkedIn [Viva Energy Australia] accounts for stories of Viva Energy employees doing more good deeds!
