good to know
At Energise, we believe that business should be a force for good. Whether it’s through creating services that help businesses address their environmental impact, purchasing goods and services that support environmental and social justice, or by creating a working culture that maximises our employees’ wellbeing, we’re using our collective power to do more good. Everything is designed, purchased and incorporated with people and planet playing at least an equal role alongside profit.
Internally, we refer to it as our Pathway to Greatness, our step by step map that identifies where we are versus where we want to end up, under each of our 5 pillars: Finance, People, Delivery, Sales and Quality. Each year, we map out which new policies and initiatives we’re going to incorporate within our working practices to take us even closer to greatness. We’re already proud of how much we do, but we know you can always do more.
That’s why we’re delighted to declare our commitment to gaining B Corp Certification, a public recognition of our leadership in environmental and social arenas.
