Social Impact Pledge

We support social impact projects locally and globally and are are a proud participant of Pledge 1% – a global movement of companies that have committed to donate 1% to change the world.

We have pledged to give at least 1% of profit to support the work of our social and community impact projects. In fact, in the last financial year we donated 5% of our profit to our social impact projects, emphatically more than our target!
