Investing in our communities
The work that we do places us at the heart of many different communities. We are committed to being a responsible member of these communities and to being a good neighbour.
Through our structured Community Investment (CI) framework we provide our time, skills and gifts in kind to leave a positive legacy wherever we work.
Our focus is on strengthening local economies and championing education in our areas of expertise. We believe this is where we can have the greatest influence, and it directly supports our purpose to build for a better society.
