Education to inspire change

Expanding knowledge, sparking innovation

We invest in education to give people the skills, knowledge and inspiration that will help us solve the challenges we face.

We’re creating an ecosystem of knowledge to make it easier for people to access expertise, learn skills, and bring ideas to life. 


Every employee at OCP has access to relevant training and development programs, giving our people the skills to create a more sustainable future. An educated workforce means everyone can help us be more efficient and productive, and have more impact in making positive change for our business, community, and the environment.

Our investment in education goes a lot further than training our employees. Our ecosystem of knowledge includes the university we founded, plus a whole range of initiatives and programs that focus on improving specific areas – from farming to coding, engineering to culture.
