SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

ASKRIGHT IN THE COMMUNITY

 

AskRIGHT values the communities in which we operate in Australia and New Zealand, and beyond. We want to be the best corporate citizens we can be, and we undertake a number of activities to be a sustainable and responsible organisation.

 

Environment

At AskRIGHT, we do all we can to minimise our impact on our environment. Our fundraising consultants work in shared spaces or home offices, which reduces our carbon footprint. We make extensive use of video-conferencing and webinars to reduce the air travel of our staff and clients. We are committed to reducing paper consumption to decrease our environmental footprint. We have also:

– Invested in an online subscription service for our PAF Guide

– Reduced the amount of internal stationery

– Encouraged our employees to follow sustainable printing paper best practices

 

Pro Bono

Each year, our fundraising consultants and staff choose an organisation as our official pro bono client for which all consulting and research fees are waived. Our Pro Bono Clients have included:

2015 – Queensland Association of Independent Legal Services (QAILS)

2014 – Hummingbird House

2013 – Hummingbird House
