Environment, Social and Governance


At oOh! we have increased our investment and commitment to sustainability with the creation of an Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) team to drive our sustainability program and embed it throughout our business operations and company culture. Our ESG program is an integral business priority linked to the long-term sustainable growth of the Company, while balancing the risk of the impacts of environmental and social concerns to the business, including climate change.

Our 2023 ESG Highlights

  • 12,000 advertising panels on renewable power including 3,000 digitals, (this represents 26% of our digital network). This means that 70% (9,500) of advertising panels in our control, and 17% (2,500) of panels out of our control are on renewable power.
  • Launch of Ecobanner – the first ever billboard banner in Australia capable of closed loop recycling to replace non-recyclable PVC – oOh! worked with the manufacturer to innovate their product specifically for the Out of Home industry, supporting its launch to market
  • Establishing an indicative* Australian operations carbon baseline of 81,047 tCO2e of which 1% is Scope 1, 33% is Scope 2 (market based) and the residual 66% is Scope 3 (based on CY22)
  • Toitu Net Zero certification of our NZ operations
  • Completion of our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
  • $16.5m of support for our community partners in CY23 totalling $137.5m since 2017
  • New community partnership signed with Greening Australia to support nature conservation
  • Launch of our new, multi-year Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Strategy including a goal to improve representation of females in leadership
  • An industry leading gender pay gap, favouring women
  • Introduction of an injury management early intervention program, to support a “First 60 minutes” triage service for injured team members
  • Implementation of our Sonder partnership and “Support You” wellbeing, safety and medical program
  • We are committed to reducing misinformation on our platforms and in the community. To support this, we have prepared anti-greenwashing guidelines based on the ACCC’s eight principles of good practice.

*We have established our CY22 baseline emissions with support from two separate third parties, the first assisting with Scope 1 and 2 and the second assisting with Scope 3. We had the Scope 1 and 2 emissions report assessed for readiness for assurance, but it has not been assured at this stage. The Scope 3 report is an estimate only.


Our 2023 Gender Pay Gap Analysis

In 2024 the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) released the inaugural private sector employer gender pay gaps. To date, employers have only known how their businesses compare to their own sector’s average and those of other industries. From 2024 all companies with 100 employees or more are required to disclose workforce composition, annual base salary, total remuneration, and other related data, each year – for all to see.

The inaugural 2023 WGEA report confirmed a “negative” gender pay gap for oOh! of -2.2%, which indicates women on average are paid more than men in our workplace. This is against an Industry Comparison Group of +14.6%.

This positive result for women is one we are hugely proud. It takes a lot for a business to achieve a gender pay gap that favours women and we’ve been working hard with dedicated strategies in place for a number of years now.

We have recently launched our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our initial RAP will lay the foundations of our company’s commitment to listening and learning, and in turn, gives us an even greater understanding and awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

oOh!’s RAP has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and was created in consultation with Two Point Co, a 100% Indigenous-owned consultancy that provided education workshops for our board, executive leadership team and the RAP working group and guided the development of the RAP.

To mark the Reflect RAP, we commissioned emerging artist, GO Foundation alumni and Wiradjuri woman, Lua Pellegrini, to create a bespoke artwork reflecting our purpose to make public spaces better. oOh!’s commitment to connect people and environment is represented with the colours and segments representing the vibrancy and diversity of Country across Australia and New Zealand. The work includes six prominent concentric circles to reflect oOh!’s six offices across both countries, which are connected by beautiful waterways.

As Australia’s leader in Out of Home and through our partnerships with advertisers, governments and commercial property partners we have a unique opportunity to build sustainable, supportive and resilient communities and to strengthen the connection Australians have with First Nations cultures and promote respect, trust, and positive relationships.


Our RAP commits to a range of actions and deliverables designed to strengthens awareness of and relationships with Australia’s First Nations people and drive meaningful reconciliation action across the entire oOh! business.



Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

When we all come together as one oOh!, united by our differences….

We innovate faster

We break down barriers

We understand each other better

We bring our whole selves to work

We’ve set the standards and behaviours we live by as an employer with diverse teams and an inclusive culture

If we are to lead the way in a digital first future we must do that as a team united by what makes us different. That’s why we are firmly focussed on diversity, equity and inclusion and a workplace where everyone has the opportunity to do their best work and be their best selves.

By being more reflective of the communities we represent – we are making public spaces better because we are our best as a team when we’re united by what makes us different.
