2019-2020 Australian Bushfire Crisis

 

As the 2019-2020 bushfires burned across Australia bringing the most devastating impact to families, townships, flora and fauna and business, Greencap actively sought ways to provide both short- and long-term support in the community.

Ideas and suggestions from team members across the business have inspired support across the three areas outlined below:

 

Pro Bono Support

The cornerstone of Greencap's support will be through applying the unique skills and expertise of teams to support the affected communities.

Greencap is currently working with local authorities and other stakeholders to arrange deployment of our mobile hazmat laboratory into affected areas to provide free: asbestos identification related services to the community; PPE (incl. P2 masks and gloves) In addition, Training for the community on what hazardous materials to look for and how they can be managed; and General advice and support that may be required.

 

Fundraising

To empower team members to make a difference, two national causes were selected, the WWF and the Red Cross Australia, with Greencap pledging to match funds donated by team members.

Greencap’s team of health and safety professionals also includes people who are members of volunteer fire and emergency services. The opportunity was identified to support the Numerella Countegany Rural Fire Service through the provision of a diesel generator – providing much needed backup power beyond the 6 hours the current capacity provides. Greencap committed to matching all donations for the generator, holding fundraising international food days and initiatives in each office.

Through team member and Greencap contributions, $1,340 was raised for the selected charities and $4,799 for the generator, which Greencap proudly presented to the fire service in May 2020.

 

Education Campaign

Throughout the period, Greencap shared useful educative resources about the impact of various hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead paint and fire retardants on people and the environment and various Health and Safety tools.
