Working together for future generations
We recognise that sustainability means different things to different people. For us, it's not just about the impact we have on our planet for future generations, but for the people living on it today as well. As such, we have identified three key pillars where, given our business activities, we can make a real and impactful difference - reducing our carbon footprint and advancing social mobility while ensuring the health and safety of our team members and customers.
As a division of OCS Australia, we’re delighted to share our 2022 OCS Australia and New Zealand Sustainability Report, which is aligned with the sustainability strategy of our parent company, OCS Group International Ltd.
2022 was another challenging year for everyone and amidst the global uncertainty, we too have faced a number of challenges to our sustainability goals and ambitions, but we have also achieved successes in this field.
Reducing our carbon footprint
As a division of OCS Australia we have been working with Toitū Envirocare since 2020. In 2020, 2021 and 2022 we offset our carbon emissions, purchasing carbon credits for the entire Australasian business and becoming a Toitū Envirocare net carbonzero certified organisation in line with ISO 14064-1.
We measure our greenhouse gas emissions and are committed to managing and reducing our emissions in respect of all operational activities of our organisation within Australia.
Going forward we will continue to offset our emissions and be a carbon neutral business. Our certification from Toitū Envirocare shows that we’re taking action on climate change, accurately measuring and reducing our greenhouse gas footprint.
OCS Group sustainability strategy
OCS Group are dedicated to adding social value wherever we operate. We work in partnership with customers, colleagues and suppliers to reduce our collective burden on the environment and we leverage our reach as a global employer to advance social mobility.
Our sustainability strategy is guided by the work we have done, supported by external experts, gathering robust data and insights on the value of our current initiatives and where we need to go further. The strategy is set at a global level, each market then owns the development of a plan to its delivery.
Midcity, alongside OCS Australia, OCS New Zealand, OCS UK companies, OCS Ireland and Landmark, our flexible workspace provider, are proud to announce our net zero carbon target date of 2040.
