The ImppACT Team - Leading Our Corporate Social Responsibility Projects
We've brought together passionate people from across all DDLS areas and locations - Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines - to drive our corporate social responsibility (CSR). They make up our ImppACT team.
The team's name stands for "Information, Making a difference, Planet, People, Action, Community, Technology." This reflects the team's vision of being "a group of awesome people, coming together to act and impact people and our planet".
DDLS is in the process of application to become B Corp certified. This will allow us to become part of an international network of organisations, with the collective vision of transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities and the planet. In line with this, the team has established Five Key Areas of Focus: People, Customers, Governance, Environment, and Community.
People - We are working towards engaging with our team to ensure their wellbeing and to provide them with benefits, compensation, training & education, communication and flexibility that are relevant to their context.
Customers - We are focused on collaborating with customers to continuously improve on and offer products or services that are designed to address a particular social problem for or through ICT education.
Governance - We believe this is crucial for both corporations and the communities they serve. Our mission here is to ensure that the company and its partners are accountable, transparent and compliant with legislation and codes of ethics.
Environment - We are watchful of how to make our materials and processes more sustainable in our offices and campuses. This is to reduce waste and the carbon footprint of our inputs and outputs.
Community - As we engage with our teams across APAC and as we grow our community of learners and partners, we seek to build meaningful relationships that foster diversity & inclusion and economic impact. This can take the form of job creation and charitable giving.
