We are a value-based company and we make deliberate choices about who we work with to maintain our principles of social justice and environmental sustainability.

Clear Horizon acknowledges the rights of Indigenous people both within Australia and overseas, and works proactively for social justice. We are committed to conserving Australia’s biodiversity and strengthening our local community.We constantly strive to be a learning organisation. A key part of this is to foster a culture where constructive feedback is routinely sought from our clients and our staff, and received by all with curiosity and openness.

We strive to be a friendly and positive workplace that values our employees and respects the need for, and supports, the effective integration of work and life.

In 2015 The Clear Horizon Foundation was established and every year under the legislation governing the Foundation, we donate 4% of our pre-tax profit. The objective of the Foundation is to engage Clear Horizon staff in a giving program that support Clear Horizon’s core values, specifically our value around being a ‘force for social and environmental good’.  At our December 2015 retreat, we determined that Indigenous reconciliation and climate change would be the target for our donations, and last year we distributed to Reconciliation Australia and Climate Council of Australia, as well as Bowel Cancer Australia in recognition of the very sad and premature passing of a staff member’s sister due to bowel cancer.

 

This year we are supporting both Reconciliation Australia as well as the National Malleefowl Recovery Team (NMRT).  The NMRT is a national organisation working to protect and conserve the Malleefowl, a vulnerable species nationally with populations that are critically endangered in the Northern Territory and Western Australia.



At Clear Horizon we are serious about sustainability. We have a passionate green team who have driven our sustainability policy over several years now. Some highlights include:

  • We've installed a solar PV system at our head office. 
  • We've replaced our halogen lights with energy-efficient LEDs.
  • We provide facilities to support cycling to work - Our staff cycle an average of 12,000kms to and from work per year.
  • We purchase carbon offsets when we fly.
  • We have a sustainable purchasing policy which includes only purchasing paper that does not compromise old growth forests. 
  • We recycle paper, plastics, cardboard and e-waste, and divert 70kg of organic food waste from landfill into our worm farm annually.
  • We use Tri Nature cleaning products that are made from natural materials and pose no threat to our country's ecology and fauna.
