At Yerra Solutions, Corporate Social Responsibility is a fundamental part of our business. We believe our CSR practices have a positive effect on the environment and local communities in which we are based. We have endeavoured to grow CSR and make it an important and well recognized part of our business. We are continuing to maximize our impact globally to have a positive effect on the world.
In addition to charity work, Yerra encourages staff to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All of our offices promote a policy of being paperless, and when in some cases this is not possible, we ensure recycling is common practice. We also reduce our carbon footprint by making simple changes to our working day, such as switching off unused equipment.
We are participating in an effort to encourage people to donate old computers, laptops and tablets to a school in Chimoio, Mozambique, to aid the education of children in need. We will provide a certificate to all who donate, proving the computer, laptop or tablet has been wiped (if required) and all information held on the device has been deleted.
Mark Burgess, who is running the campaign will also arrange for the shipping of the computers or tablets that are being donated. See images of the construction of the school here.Contact Mark Burgess >
