Croft ESG Initiatives
As a third generation, values based, family business, it is important to us that we make a stand and address the problems facing society. Family always comes first and is part of the Croft fabric.
We know that the actions we take today as a business can have dramatic impact on our children’s future. We are big enough to make an impact, small enough to care and strong enough to influence change.
This is the start of our impactful mission and ESG initiatives. We welcome feedback and growth through the journey. We all must start somewhere with achievable goals that make a difference.
David Croft – Director
Our purpose is to unconditionally support each other, no matter what. We believe if we do this our customers will be the direct beneficiary. This support extends into the growth of our teams, safety in the workplace, increasing diversity and our commitment to invest in our people.
‘Generations of Croft females have played integral roles in shaping the business to what it is today. It is important that this legacy continues in key roles across the organisation.
The ability to be able to protect our teams, knowing they will return home safely each day drives our safety culture. The safety of our people and the communities where we operate must always come first.
Our great relationships with our customers and teammates make life simply, better!! Connecting with people is key, never are they a number or colleague.’
We are committed to respecting and supporting the first people of Australia, the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander’s. We will continue to explore genuine ways we can respectfully engage and work with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples across all line of our business. What has started with Maranirra Consumables, a legitimate First Nation majority owned joint venture, will only grow over the next period.
"Maranirra" comes from the Wiradjuri Language meaning "to make good, or to make well"
Maranirra Consumables Managing Director, Lane Stockton is a proud Indigenous man belonging to Wiradjuri country, with decades of experience in the construction, building and maintenance industry working in and with a multitude of Queensland and Australia’s leading building and maintenance companies.
‘Through this partnership we have grown our community engagement and allowing a greater opportunity to give back to Indigenous communities through sports and local community events’ - Lane Stockton
We understand the need to protect our teams, equitable rights for all and are firmly against modern slavery in our supply chains. We have built a robust Supplier Code of Conduct which we strongly police. We have our modern slavery statement which we are passionate about enforcing.
Our team continues to work towards ensuring that the products we sell always have a positive impact on the community where they are produced.
We are committed to seeking alternative products that deliver the lowest environmental impact for our customers. We will continue to guide our customers and be an authority in this space as we collaborate with our manufacturers to identify innovative sustainable product solutions.
We cannot ignore the impact climate change is having on us all. The concern for us is our children’s generation and the effect it will have on them. We must act, even in small ways. We plan to be Carbon Neutral by 2030. We are only beginning our journey, but we have set a base line and a clear path.
Our purpose is to unconditionally support each other, no matter what.
We believe if we do this our customers will be the direct beneficiary. This support extends into the growth of our teams, safety in the workplace, increasing diversity and our commitment to invest in our people.
