We commit to giving at least 1% of our revenues back to the community each year. In recent years this has taken the form of patronage of the Mission Beach Film Festival and Mission Arts and donations to the Kurrimine Beach Progress Assn., Innisfail Community Band, South Johnstone State School, Tully State High School, Innisfail Men’s Shed, Mission Beach Petanque Club, Tully Netball, Tully Heads Wellness & Crafts Group and C4
We commit to reducing our impact on our environment wherever we can.
We limit our energy use, restrict unnecessary travel and recycle our waste whenever possible. Each year we conduct a full Carbon Audit and offset our emissions from electricity use, car and plane travel, waste production and paper use. In previous years we chose to use Climate Friendly to offset our carbon; but since 2015 we have been using South Pole who provide a service for small business. Conducting a Carbon Audit not only allows us to calculate our offset requirement, but it has also focused our attention on energy usage. We now receive the majority of our electricity from our own solar generation.
We commit to being full and active members of our community.
We are involved in a number of community groups in the Mission Beach, Cassowary Coast and Far North Queensland region. These have included positions within the Cassowary Coast Business Women’s Network, Cassowary Coast Economic Development, Mission Beach Community Association, Mission Beach & Burgundy Club, Cassowary Coast Regional Council Audit Committee, Cassowary Coast Regional Council Rates Reference Group, Mission Beach Aquatic Recreation Club, Cassowary Coast Investment Advisory Group, Mission Beach Film Festival, Mission Beach Aquatic Facility Community Consultation Group and the Cassowary Coast Regional Council Economic Development Reference Group. We are current members of the Forum 4 Business Growth, Advance Cairns, CCIQ and Tully Chamber of Commerce.
We commit to continually updating and upgrading our training.
In order to offer our clients the highest level of service we believe we must stay at the forefront of developments within our industry. We therefore undertake regular training activities and maintain membership of relevant industry bodies where appropriate. These include the Economics Society of Australia (Queensland), the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand.
