CBM’s CEO also provides pro bono professional support and advice to the Leadership Team of Believe Global as it expands its influence and positive impact throughout the Pacific region.

iSEE CARE is the community care arm of iSEE Church, a dynamic growing organisation with campuses throughout Australia as well as in Mumbai and Hong Kong. iSEE CARE recognises that mental health, teen suicide, bullying, isolation and family breakdowns are some of the greatest issues facing Australians. The wonderful people who operate iSEE CARE focus on supporting and empowering young people and families to be part of the solution. They provide practical support to those who need a bit of help to get by, and they create better futures through their programs in schools and universities.

DESERT SPRINGS PROJECTS
In 2017 CBM helped establish a majority Aboriginal owned social enterprise named Desert Springs Projects with the aim of setting it up to become a strong operating company specialising in bringing cost effective and reliable renewable energy to outlying and remote Indigenous communities in outback Australia.
The company achieved Supply Nation accreditation and undertook sustainable development projects in conjunction with other Aboriginal owned entities utilising the experience, skills and capability held within CBM.
Recently, having fulfilled our aims, CBM granted its 39% ownership to our Aboriginal partner whilst continuing to provide high level professional support pro bono to it’s Director.
POTENTIAL FUTURE OLYMPIAN
On occasion, CBM provides support to deserving athletes who have been identified as having significant potential to excel on the national or world stage but who do not yet have the backing of major corporate sponsorship or an Institute of Sport scholarship.
In 2023, CBM reached agreement with James Hansen for him to become an Ambassador for Exceed Engineering, our engineering business which is part of CBM Sustainability Group.
James Hansen’s recent performances as a runner at national level have placed him as an eligible candidate for Paris 2024.

The Raptor Refuge
CBM is a proud supporter of The Raptor Refuge in southern Tasmania. The Raptor Refuge is committed to securing the future of Tasmania's raptors by reducing human impacts through rehabilitating injured, sick or orphaned raptors, educating the public and supporting habitat conservation.
Raptors play a very important ecological role by controlling populations of rodents, introduced bird species and other small mammals.
Also, the presence of raptors in the wild serves as a barometer of ecological health. Because threats like pesticides, habitat loss, and climate change have the most dramatic impact on top predators, healthy populations of raptor species signifies a healthy natural ecosystem.
Anyhow, who isn’t awed by the vision of a wild wedge-tailed eagle effortlessly gliding high in the sky, or the beautiful night-time call of the boobook owl!
