our commitment to
sustainability

As a small Australian business, supporting 3 growing families, we are consciously aware of what we can do to create a positive future for our children and grandchildren.

After growing up on the land, and still living in rural Australia, our lives are connected deeply with rural living and local communities, and with this, we have an sense of responsibility for nurturing of our environment.

What we've learnt on our journey to becoming more sustainable, is that making change for 'the greater good' isn't about doing a million different things, it's about investing in incremental long-term, achievable change, for the better.

We are constantly building our awareness, and re-evaluating our processes and systems to challenge us on our journey to becoming a more sustainable as a workplace to ensure a healthy, productive planet for future generations.

our sustainable practices


Working from Home

Since we started our business in 2012, we have always worked from home.

By working from home, we reduced our overall usage of electricity (including use of solar power and LED lighting) and other consumables, along with associated commuting emissions.

We also reduce unnecessary waste with a paperless office.

Working Online

Since we started our business in 2012, we have always preferred and opted to use online/digital technologies for meetings, rather than travel for meetings.

This not only boosts productivity, but reduces our travel related carbon emissions - all whilst maintaining client satisfaction and achieving growth in our business year on year.

carbon off-set travel

When we do travel interstate via air, we invest in certified airline carbon offset schemes.

Whereby, we pay additional investment to support airline-initiated projects that either take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or avoid its release – effectively counterbalancing the emissions associated with our flights.

sustainable planning

Our focus on sustainability not only features heavily in our personal lives, but also in the Strategic Planning process

regenerative farming

Our families, whom live and work on the land in rural South Australia, regularly invest in our own personal tree planting program, and have a focus on regenerative farming practices.

ONGOING EDUCATION

We're reading and learning widely in this space, and sharing best practice knowledge with industry in our Mentoring Programs, Speaking and Blogs.
