Environmental, Social and Governance
ACS Environmental, Social and Governance policy.
As a company, we are proud of the many positive governance initiatives we have introduced in all areas of our business including social, economic, cultural, financial and environmental sustainability. Through determination and a clear focus on becoming an industry leader as a socially responsible organisation, we continuously seek out innovative and sustainable ways to be better and do better for our business, our partners and the environment.
Our company culture is very much shaped by our commitment to a ‘one team, one family’ philosophy. Following a Responsible Employment Strategy and clear recruitment guidelines, we target and attract a diverse workforce. We are then able to introduce them to a culturally accepting and safe work environment supported by a strict Employment Policy, where training and incentive programs encourage employment longevity and career pathways.
Our safe work environment is also supported by:
- Code of Ethics
- Equal Opportunity Act
- Gender Equality Action Plan
- Modern Slavery Act
- Respect for Diversity Policy and Guidelines
- Responsible Employment Policy
- Sexual Harassment Policy
- Anti bullying Policy
Diversity and Inclusion
We celebrate diversity as an organisation and work diligently to provide an inclusive environment where no one is excluded based on their race, gender, sexual preference, abilities or religion. Working with specialist recruitment agencies, we offer meaningful employment opportunities and secure contracts for those with disabilities. While also maintaining a strong focus on equality and safety for women, with half our staff being female and many in senior roles.
Closing the Gap
The establishment of ACS Indigenous was part of our vision for a more inclusive Australian community, and to help ‘Close the Gap’ through improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Built on the core pillars of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities, we focus on creating new employment and career opportunities and procurements, to actively improve their quality of life and economic circumstances.
Our commitment to a more sustainable environment is a core driver for our business, as we work closely with our clients to reach sustainability targets and lower our carbon footprint. Through our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, sustainable supply chain partners, waste management and auditing, and our use of green products and technologies, we continually seek out new and innovative ways to reduce our environmental impact for the future
