Corporate Social Responsibility
Railtrain often participate in provincial social programs in addition to supporting local community activities and teams. Here are some of our contributions below:
Australia's Biggest Morning Tea
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council Australia’s most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.
White Ribbon is a part of a global social movement working to eliminate gendered violence. We strive for an Australian society where all women and children are safe.
White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement engaging men and boys to end men’s violence against women and girls, promote gender equality and create new opportunities for men to build positive, healthy and respectful relationships.
The White Ribbon movement works through a primary prevention approach in communities, schools and workplaces across the country. Through our programs and campaigns, we engage with men to become active in the social change needed to stop men’s violence against women and children.

Boobalicious Ball, Breast Cancer Care WA
As a Corporate Sponsor for the 2021 Boobalicious Ball, Railtrain Holdings Group played a part in raising $339,520 for Breast Cancer Care WA. Breast Cancer Care WA receives no recurrent government funding, relying solely on the generosity of the Western Australian community to fund the provision of emotional, practical and financial support to the many West Australian women and their families living with a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Carbon Positive Australia
As an alternative to mailing paper Christmas cards to our valued customers and suppliers, Railtrain Holdings Group partnered with Carbon Positive Australia during the Christmas period, sending e-cards and establishing a tree in regional Australia on the recipient’s behalf which will result in the planting of 110 trees.
This initiative funds planting projects across Australia, planting native trees and shrubs on degraded land. Each species planted is specially chosen to be appropriate for the land they are planting on.
