We encourage Energetics’ people to actively participate in a range community fundraising initiatives. This encouragement is backed by the allocation to each employee of two days personal development time within which they can pursue community work.
Our relationships with our partners are what sets this program apart. Energetics have been right by our side providing expert and experienced sustainability practitioner input from the start – it what really puts the wind under workplace projects and helps the program earn its exceptional reputation.
We're more than carbon neutral. Sustainability is core to Energetics’ business.
In June 2008, Energetics became one of Australia's first consulting firms to achieve carbon neutrality through the Australian Government’s former Greenhouse Friendly Program. In addition to implementing energy efficient practices, Energetics continues to offset 100% of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the complete lifecycle of our services.
In line with our Sustainability Policy, our eTeam drives continuous improvement by identifying and implementing internal carbon mitigation, sustainable procurement and behavioural change projects.
Environmental role model in the community
Energetics has always aspired to have a positive impact on the environment and is proud to be a pro bono partner supporting the Great Barrier Reef Foundation in their mission to find and fund solutions to sustain the Great Barrier Reef and protect it from the impacts of climate change.
Energetics encourages its employees to be environmental ambassadors by participating in the ‘ZooX Ambassador Program’ and the ‘Sciencists in Schools Program’ which is dedicated to raising students’ understanding of scientific methodologies.
Supporting our Energetics family and broader community
Energetics is committed to creating a safe and nurturing workplace environment for employees. We have developed employee programs and human resource policies to guide us in providing a workplace which embraces diversity, wellbeing, learning and development, and flexible working arrangements.
We are continuously evolving our programs, policies and developing new initiatives to support our ‘People and Culture’ theme within the Strategic Plan, championed by Energetics’ CEO Tony Cooper, designed to create a workplace which is the best place to develop, work and succeed; collaborate and work well together; grow leadership capabilities; and improve and support our community.
In Energetics most recent report to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency, we highlighted the role of women in senior management positions, opportunities to pursue learning and development opportunities and work life balance. While Energetics’ has traditionally drawn consultants from the engineering profession, the complex challenges for Australian businesses arising from climate change, demand expertise from a range of business disciplines. Energetics has been fortunate to attract and retain female engineers, some of whom are recognised as leaders within their fields. However we are also increasingly recruiting consulting staff who are economists, scientists, lawyers, IT specialists and analysts, diversifying our workforce and increasing the number of women.
