Vivid has a genuine social conscience and is working to elevate and make transparent its sustainability, environmental, social and governance strategies.
The cleaning sector is a high risk for modern slavery in Australia. As a significant employer, we take very seriously our obligation to ensure modern slavery practices are not present within our business or our supply chain.
We are committed to responsible employment practices and procurement. We have implemented policies, procedures, and resources to guard against human rights violations. Our partners and contractors are required to provide their Modern Slavery Policy and procedures and are periodically audited to ensure compliance.
Vivid has submitted its Modern Slavery Statement to Australian Border Force.
Vivid is in the process of developing its ‘Innovate’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). By formalising our commitment to bridging the gap, we will drive our contribution to reconciliation with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander People.
We’re doing what we can do lower our energy consumption and reduce or offset our carbon emissions. For example, we’ve located our head office in an ecologically sustainable building which features solar activated external blinds, motion-sensor lighting, and rain water tanks.
We also actively monitor, trial and adopt new ‘green’ technologies such as High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter backpack vacuums and GERMii’s UV-C germicidal irradiation lamp (GIL) handwands.
We’re contracted to use ‘GreenPower 100’, a government-managed program that lets businesses support renewable energy generation. We’ve digitised our business. And we’ve invested in a fleet of electric hybrid vehicles.
Whether purchasing for our business, or on behalf of our clients, our procurement policy is designed to minimise negative environmental impacts by ensuring the products and services we select:
- Conserve natural resources, materials and energy
- Maximise recyclability and recycled materials
- Reduce toxicity to our natural environment.
Whenever possible, we look for products which are Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) or Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA) certified.
We support a large and diverse group of community initiatives and local charities. In recent years, this has included:
- Sponsoring the Maliyans United Football, the Australian Indigenous women’s football championship
- Supporting Vivid alum and former Socceroos captain, Jade North, in his work as an ambassador of the Givit Foundation and founder of the ‘Kickin with a Cuz’ football program
- Participating in the Variety Club’s ‘Variety Bash’
- Supporting the Johnathan Thurston (JT) Academy, a national provider of programs aimed at employment, education and well-being
- Hosting a traditional smoking ceremony, one of the oldest and most significant ceremonies in Indigenous culture, on Australia Day.
