OCS ANZ releases 2022 sustainability report

Facilities management services company OCS Australia & NZ releases 2022 sustainability report.

OCS Australia and New Zealand’s (together, OCS ANZ) commitment to people, partnerships and carbon reduction has been highlighted in their 2022 Sustainability Report, released this week.

Gareth Marriott, MD OCS ANZ, said having a sound sustainability framework is more valuable than ever.

“Our framework puts our people, customers, and communities at the centre of all that we do. Alongside providing exceptional facilities management services, we aim to make a positive social and environmental impact every day.”

Marriot said one thing that stood out for him in 2022 is OCS’ focus on partnerships.

“Partnerships are essential in recognising real change. We are committed to working with customers, industry experts and supply partners to achieve our respective climate action and sustainability goals.

“It’s never too late to adopt sustainable practices. We have seen a rise in innovative and collaborative solutions to everyday problems and increased opportunities for our team members to take on new responsibilities.”

“We’re also proud to partner with Toitū Envirocare, and in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Sustainable Business Council and Climate Leaders Coalition – all leaders in advocating for sustainable outcomes for all.”

OCS has achieved, for the third year, Toitū net carbonzero certification.

Carbon reduction has been under the microscope for OCS in 2022, and the company enlisted Toitū Envirocare to help them generate new science-based carbon reduction targets.

“Climate change presents environmental, social, and economic crises on a whole new level. For nearly two millennia, humans have been carbonising the planet, and we must act to decarbonise.

“The events of the first part of this year, particularly in the northern parts of Aotearoa New Zealand, and New South Wales and Queensland, Australia, show us the devastating impacts on our communities. Setting new science-based targets is a step in the right direction, however, it’s a small drop in what’s required globally – we need to all work together now if we are to effect real change.”
