Our Bridge to Better

We’re proud to call an internationally-adored icon that connects all people to the heart of Sydney our home.

Opening our arms to over five million climbers, we care deeply for people and community on both a local and global level. That's why we aim to help those in need and contribute to sustaining our beautiful city and country whenever we can.

Community

making dreams come true

Since 1998, we’ve strived to make climbing for good causes a focus. As a passionate bunch, we’re dedicated to serving local neighbouring communities the best way we can and make strides to support and promote partners who share our people-first and fair-go values.

In 2022 we held our inaugural Climb for a Cause charity climb event - raising over $70,000 in support of the Black Dog Institute and their ground-breaking research in mental health. Our 2023 event is taking place on Sunday, 7 May, and will be bigger and better - join us at the summit to step up and raise funds for mental health! 

Throughout 2020, BridgeClimb has hosted over 400 Australian and international firefighters to say thank you for their services and sacrifices

We open our arms to charity partners including ANZAC partners, The Starlight Foundation and Movember

As part of BridgeClimb’s Artist in Residence intiative, we supported the NSW photography community with complimentary Harbour Bridge photography experiences

Inclusivity & diversity

On top together, hand in hand

We’re grateful to be custodians of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and want to play our part in bringing people together and celebrating our differences. We’ll continue to focus on how we can better support and commit to a more inclusive and diverse world.

Environmental

A sustainable future

Just like a BridgeClimb, we want the planet to be a safe place to laugh, learn and play for future generations. We're committed to a journey of continual improvement in the way we support our planet. From the suppliers we work with to considering our carbon footprint, we're excited to be having these important conversations and stepping into this space more and more. 

CLIMATE ACTIVE CERTIFICATION

BridgeClimb is proud to hold a Climate Active certification for our business operations - awarded to organisations that have credibly reached a state of carbon neutrality against the requirements of the Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard for Organisations. To achieve certification BridgeClimb has measured emissions, commits to reducing these where possible, and offsets remaining emissions by investing in carbon offset projects.

RECYCLED CLIMBER CERTIFICATES

Certifiably green and full of joy! Our Certificate of Achievement given to all BridgeClimbers once they complete their unforgettable experience is crafted from 100% recycled and recyclable paper. Not that you'll ever throw this away. Fridge worthy for years to come!

Also, in our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, and sustainable, BridgeClimb has reduced its paper needs considerably but in the rare cases that printing is required, partners with printing companies that only use stock from FSC-certified forests which continually replant to replace on an ongoing basis and use other recyclable initiatives.

OTHER SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

The BridgeClimb team take part in the Annual Clean up Australia Day, a partnership lasting over 10 years
