Our focus on sustainability
Venture Group has a strong ethical stance on sustainable practice and we have sustainability policies in place to support our own work in practical and aspirational terms. Our approach to working with clients builds on the need for sustainable actions, both for a successful business and culture, and to achieve environmental and social goals.
The company has a Sustainability Policy and Action Plan that outlines what we do to minimise company use of non-renewable resources though practical measures. These include rationalising air travel, clustering appointments that require travel and sharing transport whenever feasible.
Venture Group team members have appropriate ICT, internet access and mobile phones to enable them to work from home rather than travel to the office, dependent on the demands of the work in which they are engaged. Staff can choose to work 3 to 5 day weeks under a flexi-time system that encourage genuine life-work alignment, with generous paid leave and conditions of employment.
We see good employer practices as fundamental to building a sustainable business. Venture Group employment conditions include a commitment to EEO and to employing staff with the background and or skills to work with the diverse communities of Aotearoa / New Zealand.
The Venture Group office is located in a heritage building with good natural lighting and stairs instead of a lift. Staff dress to suit the weather and use natural ventilation rather than heaters and air conditioning.
Venture Group recycles all office paper and plastic, utilises e-waste recycling opportunities for computers, toner and other equipment. We are an active supporter of DonateNZ, the resource recycling exchange for community organisations, and an active member of the Northland Sustainable Business network.
