Social Responsibility

Our group participates in a variety of charitable causes. We’re proud to have implemented an engaging Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program to assist communities that are grappling with a raft of social issues such as poverty, homelessness, environment, mental health and wellbeing.

We provide employees with opportunities to participate in our CSR program to make a difference with social and non-profit organisations and feel a sense of community where personal values align with CSR business values.

Our CSR program aims to give back to communities that in turn, help improve society. CSR activities are diverse in nature and benefits but can range from supporting annual causes such as fundraising/donating money to non-profits, sponsoring/partnering with social organisations and/or community groups and implementing environmentally-friendly policies in the workplace.

Our CSR program is successful as it is supported by the leadership team as well as our amazing employees.
