Addressing our gender pay gap

We've published our first Gender Pay Gap Statement. Jeff Dimery, our MD and CEO, explains our data and what we're doing to address the gap.

The additional transparency provided by this inaugural gender pay gap statement is welcome and worthwhile. While it makes for challenging reading, ultimately, it’s a measure that will help us determine whether changes to our practices and policies are making a difference for women at Alinta Energy.

Our median gender pay gap is 39.4%. As with any statistics, context is critically important. In 2022, this gender pay gap increased by 17.1% when we onshored our contact centre, creating around 250 new jobs in the process and hiring mostly women. That’s not an excuse or a defence, but it’s something that we need to be clear about up front. 

We have made, and continue to make, good progress on gender equality across the company – and we are determined to make more substantial progress in targeted action on the gender pay gap.

Alinta workers at LYB

I’m proud that in recent years we have appointed two women to our executive leadership team and increased female representation on our Board. In 2023 we also increased the percentage of women in our management teams from 26% to 37%.

We are also proud to be an equal pay employer, ensuring that on a like-for-like job basis, our employees are paid the same, regardless of gender.

It’s a good start but I’m conscious that we have much more to do, and I look forward to reporting back on our progress in the coming years.

More than great energy. 

That’s better.™
