Lab 17 is revolutionising the tech recruiting and HR industry, and doing it sustainably has been part of their values since day one.
Why is Lab 17 committed to being a carbon neutral business?
From day one Lab17 committed to the 1% for the planet movement and building a network of “Social Impact” partners that we could work together with so that we could have a greater impact beyond commercial outcomes and building an organisation that would enable individuals to thrive in their careers.
The way we operate through an embedded model allows us to deliver outcomes and sustainable growth for our partners, ultimately leaving them in a better place than when we found them on day one of our partnership.
It's this same mindset and commitment that lead to the importance of being a carbon neutral business. We believe at an individual and organisational level that we all have a responsibility to contribute to a better and more sustainable future for the planet.
What sustainability initiatives have you implemented / are you working on?
We have x3 social impact partners that we proactively invest in, and physically assist where we can. These are:
- Rainforest Rescue (Silver partner)
- Solar Buddy
- Take 3 for the sea
What is your team’s and customer’s reaction to Lab 17’s approach to sustainability?
Sustainability is such a crucial part of our DNA at Lab17 that we probably don’t pause to recognise that reaction it has, it’s ingrained in our approach and desire to have an impact at a deeper level.
It's more important that our team and customers recognise the opportunity to also work with our social impact partners and platforms such as Trace.
Overall I hope it drives curiosity which leads to more action taken by individuals and organisations. The team at Lab17 definitely appreciates that we provide a platform and different opportunities to have an impact on sustainability.
