Fronde is fully committed to the goal of Corporate Social Responsibility and the role we each can play in achieving it.
We actively assess our suppliers for the sustainability of their procurement processes. For example, we buy our paper from Fuji Xerox because they comply with the Green Purchasing Network guidelines for printing and copying paper procurement. Their paper suppliers have proven and internationally recognised commitment towards the environment and are eco-conscious to the best possible level.
We encourage employees to run, walk or cycle to work by providing showers and and towel services, along with storage for bikes and lockers. We have also reduced the need for travel between our offices by using a dedicated video conferencing facility, Google Meet.
Fronde continues to assess our processes and systems in order to reduce our environmental impact. We ensure all our employees adhere to our clients' environmental policies as well as our own.
Where hardware is destined for destruction, Fronde employs certified and internationally-recognised wipe methodologies, and secure destruction is often undertaken by an organisation whose profits go directly back to community charities.
Supporting Youth in IT
In terms of supporting the wider community, Fronde is extremely passionate about bringing youth into IT and securing the pipeline of ICT professionals in New Zealand.
There are a number of ways in which we encourage youth to get involved in IT, including running our own Internship Programme, participating in ShadowTech Day, and often sponsoring awards such as the CIO Engaging Youth in IT Award, and The Hi-Tech Young Achiever Award.
The Wider Community
Part of our mantra is pitching in where we can and being true team-players. This extends to our wider environment and we are proud to support our community in a variety of ways such as donating time, money and effort to causes our people care about.
