Visy Cares was established in 1995 to promote corporate social responsibility by developing projects in locations where Visy has large manufacturing sites or areas of substantial community need. As at April 2008 seven Visy Cares initiated projects are operating in Dandenong, Shepparton (2), Reservoir, Meadow Heights, Laverton and Sunshine.  Projects are at various stages in Fairfield and Brisbane.
