Great News! Q-Free brought their sustainability partnership with following partners to the digital space with an internal Lunch and Learn meeting on Social Procurement:
Transurban: One of the world’s largest toll road developers and operators
Multicap Limited: A For Purpose organisation working to increase long-term employment opportunities and skills for people with disabilities and,
Apricot: a consultancy agency specialising in ESG implementation.
Social Procurement is a mechanism to leverage social value from existing spending. Together with their partners in Australia, Q-Free is working to increase long-term employment for people with disabilities. Multicap employees are trained and work on the manual review of images from Q-Free's tolling systems and they are so happy with the joint collaboration and outcome.
Here are some partner quotes in breif:
“By collaborating with suppliers we can provide meaningful work opportunities for people facing barriers to employment, as well as create shared value for the communities in which we operate”. Sebastian Conley, Sustainable Procurement Manager at Transurban
“Remember when you work with a person-centered approach, it can truly have an enormous impact”. Tony Burns, General Manager Employment at MultiCap.
And to wrap it up:
"We feel proud and honoured to be working with our partners Transurban, MultiCap, and Apricot in providing ongoing, sustainable, and meaningful work opportunities whilst focusing on ability, not disability". Silje Troseth, General Manager at Q-Free Australia,
Together we are changing the movements of life.
