Commitment to our team
Our initiatives and strategy for Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Social Governance moving forwards are underpinned by our sustainability vision. We value our workforce and our goal is to empower their unique experiences and knowledge by 2021’s end. Our aim is to have six employees from various departments, cultural backgrounds and ethnicities to complete the ‘Empower People (DE&I) Fundamentals’ training. Then implementing the diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy in our organisation following the training, we will monitor the goals for future improvements every quarter, to ensure that we continuously progress towards the goal of creating an inclusive organisational culture.
As the IT people who are people-people, our team is integral to providing the level of service and care that we are known for. To give back to our people we aim to conduct an employee survey, using Culture Amp, to understand the status of our employees’ well-being and needs by the end of October 2021. We will then implement at least 2 new on-going programs to address these gaps identified in employee well-being.
Commitment to our environment
To hero our commitment to our ESG strategy and the environment, Truis have a number of initiatives to do our part in caring for the planet. Outcomes from these sustainability initiatives are to reduce the volume of waste to landfill generated by 5% annually and increase the amount of materials recycled by 10% annually. We pledge to complete at least two office waste management related activities moving forward and champion 2 e-waste drives with a minimum of one per year. As our organisation is technology based, we are committed to also reduce our energy consumption by 2% annually.
By 2022 we aim to obtain a baseline of our carbon footprint. By doing so, we can consequently implement relevant and on-going eco-friendly processes and policies into our operations to reduce our impact on the environment. We know our decisions and actions today will ensure our legacy continues.
Commitment to others
We are proud supporters and have an ongoing partnership with Cancer Council. As part of this partnership we aim to contribute 120 hours of paid volunteer time per quarter. Together, we also are committed to donate $10,000 towards not only our primary charity, Cancer Council, but other charities in which our employees feel personally driven to contribute towards. We will support our people and our team in their endeavours to do good by others.
