Creating Social Change Our IMPACT Program

As a purpose driven company, we have a responsibility to make a positive contribution to society. Firstly, through the work we do with our customers and the standard of education and experience that we strive to achieve, but secondly our IMPACT Program is about doing more.

It is about scaling our IMPACT to individuals and groups that would not normally have the opportunity to take part in our education programs.

Through our IMPACT Program, we aim to make a distinctive contribution to increasing diversity in STEM. This program underpins our voluntary social investment and aligns to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which are most relevant to our business and the community we serve.

We work in genuine collaboration with our IMPACT Team on the following three United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

IMPACT Team

The Surveyors' Trust

The Surveyors’ Trust is a vibrant community of surveying and spatial professionals. They work together as a collective – pooling the royalties they receive from the sale of the plans that they develop. These pooled funds are invested in capital and education projects to achieve recognition and sustainability for the surveying and spatial industry.

The Surveyors' Trust is increasing our IMPACT by funding two of our online courses to be delivered to every school in QLD, removing financial barriers to every school to access drone and geospatial science resources and teaching.

GIVIT

During times of disaster and emergency, GIVIT works with government agencies, local councils and not-for-profit organisations to identify the immediate and long-term needs of the affected community.

GIVIT then matches offers from individuals and businesses to ensure those who need assistance get exactly what they need, where and when they need it most.

We are working with GIVIT, because in times of disaster, often children’s education is affected. We aim to provide an experience for identified communities in need, to help lift their confidence and lift the spirits of kids experiencing hardship. It is often through these experiences that students come up with creative ways to solve problems. These are the skills of the future that we are wanting to foster.

Ignite FNQ

Ignite FNQ is all about connecting and empowering diverse FNQ communities by fostering innovation to build social, economic and environmental prosperity. 

We have partnered with Ignite FNQ to leverage the work we are doing across Queensland. They have provided funding to deliver Teacher Professional Development programs to regional and remote regions in FNQ.
