At Datacom, we are committed to making a meaningful contribution to communities and recognise the interests of stakeholders beyond that of our shareholders - the broader community.
We seek to do this through the support of cultural and educational institutions and charities, via financial grants, in-kind donations and sponsorships and through supporting the volunteer activities of our employees. We encourage our team members to become actively involved in their local communities.
The London Benchmarking Group (LBG) verified Datacom’s Group 2013 investment in the community at NZ$731,000, an increase of 20 percent on our 2012 contribution. The biggest increase being in our commercial initiatives - through nurturing long term partnerships with charitable partners. For 2013 our CSR contribution as a percentage of pre-tax profit is 1.4 percent.
These are just some of the ways we support our community:
