We believe that having a positive impact on the communities in which we operate is crucial to our success as a company.
This has become central to the way pact operates and we actively encourage a spirit of generosity within our employees and broader stakeholder groups. This is demonstrated through our many community based initiatives.
‘Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea’
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea has been an annual feature of the Pact calendar for the last nine years, providing an opportunity for workmates to come together, share a cup of tea and help those affected by cancer.
We are proud to have raised more than $70,000 since hosting our first Morning Tea event, helping provide funds for vital cancer research, prevention and support services across Australia. This year we donated more than $13,000.
Ronald McDonald House
Charities Australia and New Zealand
We were delighted to announce a brand new partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) in FY16 that complements our existing portfolio of not-for-profit relationships. Pact has been searching for a suitable partner that focusses on child and family welfare support after receiving feedback from our annual Employee Engagement Survey, and believe we have found a wonderful organisation to support.
With 16 locations around Australia and three in New Zealand, Ronald McDonald Houses offer a home-awayfrom-home, giving families somewhere more comfortable to stay than a waiting room, chair on a ward or in their car whilst their seriously ill children are being cared for in hospital.
Pact subsidiary, Sulo, is proud to be involved with non-profit organisation WasteAid, which has been established to provide basic waste services to disadvantaged areas of Australia, predominantly assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. Sulo has provided the waste bins for various projects and Pact are also proud to further support WasteAid as they further implement their waste services throughout remote communities.
