This policy applies to our company and its subsidiaries. It may also refer to suppliers and partners.

Protecting the environment
Our company recognises the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We will always follow best practices when disposing of waste and using chemical substances.
We will ensure that we:
Don't risk the health and safety of our employees and community.
Support diversity and inclusion.
Our company is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and will abide by all related policies and practices. We will ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g., forced labour).
Donations and aid
Our company may preserve a budget to make monetary donations or provide pro bono consultancy support.
This will aim to:
Advance the arts, education, and community events.

Supporting the community
Our company may provide free training and education to community groups who may benefit from our experience, or other services at our discretion. We do not invite applications for support, instead approach organisations we have particular interest in.
