Giving back to the community

The pandemic has proven that people and businesses can overcome adversity and give back to their community even in the toughest of times, emerging as local heroes in their communities.

At Calix, we take our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seriously, and we believe we can help create lasting social change that benefits the whole of society, while continuing to grow.

Another initiative to support the local community is Calix’s sponsorship of the Bacchus Marsh Senior Women’s AFL football team, the Cobras.

This partnership aligns with one of Calix’s three core values – Positive Impact. While Calix has reached out across the globe with operations on four continents, it is proud of its roots and wants to continue to support the communities in which it operates.

 

Communication on Progress to UN Global Compact

Following our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact in November 2020, Calix has published its first UN Global Compact Communication on Progress report.

Solving Global Challenges has been the basis of Calix’s passion and business for more than a decade, with a mission to urgently develop great businesses, leverage our patented technology, and thus deliver positive global impact. At Calix, we continuously ask the following question of ourselves: with global climate, energy, and sustainability issues set to intensify, how can we use innovation and teamwork to develop solutions that solve the challenges that are increasingly putting our planet at risk?

Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is deeply embedded in our purpose, the reason we exist: “Because Mars is for quitters.”

Sustainability is not just about environmentalism, but also about adding social and economic concerns to the world’s development agenda. Since 2020, Calix has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), supporting its ten founding principles related to human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption.

By living our purpose and delivering on our strategy, we believe we can make a positive difference on the society at large for the long-term, while maximising positive outcomes and growth for our customers and shareholders.

 

We are committed to make all of the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) part of our company culture and day-to-day operations, and we see the corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a journey towards long-term growth, competitiveness, big picture thinking, strong company culture, and a genuine team spirit. Because innovation in one area cannot make up for doing harm in another. We believe sustainability is about more than operating responsibly. It’s an opportunity to support the communities we’re a part of and make a positive impact on the world.

Plant a tree and help us capture CO2

It’s no secret that combatting global warming is one of the biggest and most important challenges of the 21st century.

Participating in carbon capture from your own home may seem daunting – after all, how much difference can one person really make? The short answer – a lot!

As the world slowly emerges from the global pandemic shutdown and we all begin travelling and commuting again, the environment will feel the impact of increased greenhouse gas emissions.

More than ever, our collective efforts to help mitigate the negative environmental consequences of climate change matter!

Because there is only one Earth.

It’s all go at Bacchus Marsh

There’s been lots of activity on all fronts in recent months with two site tours for local politicians and media, an exciting sponsorship and some fundraising efforts by the dedicated Bacchus Marsh team who enjoyed coming together for a shared meal.

In December, Calix commenced an engagement program with the local Bacchus Marsh (BM) community to showcase Calix’s achievements and future plans.

The aim was to reach out to local councillors, some of whom were newly elected in November, shire council executives, state and federal government members and local media to make them aware of the innovative technology and products being developed at the Maddingly facility and show that Calix is an important employer in the municipality.
