HammondCare's Commitment to Sustainability

Caring for those in need is ingrained in everything we do, every day. We also strongly care about the impact we have on the environment. We have identified sustainability targets to 2023, with a strong commitment to building sustainability awareness into everything we do.

We will manage resources wisely and sustainably

At HammondCare, we are motivated by our Mission in Action, to serve and show Christ’s love by being wise with our resources.

As an organisation with a particular focus on supporting people in need, there is added significance in promoting environmental sustainability.

“Sustainability” is not a new idea at HammondCare, we already have large investment in optimising energy consumption, energy-efficient design and smart technology.

However, over the next five years we are being explicit with what sustainability means to us, and what actions we are taking. It is with those goals that I am pleased to introduce HammondCare’s first Sustainability Strategy.

We have an opportunity to reduce our environmental footprint, remain innovative, maximise our resources, and for us all to become champions of sustainability.

Our commitment to environmental stewardship

Our commitment to environmental stewardship

As a Christian organisation, HammondCare is committed to environmental stewardship because God loves His creation and His creation is good (Genesis 1).

We have been made in the image of God and He calls us to be stewards (Genesis 1:26 - 30), responsibly caring for His creation with wisdom and faithfulness. Mankind were put in God’s creation to “work it and take care of it” (Genesis 2:15).
