The team at Viatek Geelong have been supporting local tree planting projects since 2019 and to date have purchased 240 trees for community groups.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) can take many forms but for us … tree planting hits a number of targets!

  • Community groups benefit as they receive free trees for their projects.
  • The environment benefits as trees mean habitat for the native insects, birds, reptiles and mammals.
  • And companies benefit too. Through CSR programs, companies can help society while promoting their own brands. Corporate social responsibility can boost morale and can help both employees and employers feel more connected with the world around them’. (www.investopedia.com).

 

It’s perhaps not surprising that a company specialising in efficient systems should understand that it is, in itself, part of a system. A social, economic, and human system, one that ultimately needs to recognise its environmental stewardship role in order to prosper. We are glad that Viatek takes its responsibilities seriously and applies them to its own business practices, and more than happy to help it reduce its impact by planting trees.
