Data#3 receives global recognition for ESG and CSR

November 29, 2022; Brisbane, Australia: Leading Australian technology services and solutions provider, Data#3, is proud to share that is has been named as the recipient of the 2022 Enlightened Growth Leadership Award by the Frost & Sullivan Institute.

The Enlightened Growth Leadership Awards recognise organisations that are committed to making the world a better place and that are part of the solution to challenges the world faces today. This is the only award that considers the synergy between financial growth, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental, social and governance (ESG).

Companies that are listed have demonstrated proactivity in utilising business practices to ‘innovate to zero’ and address global priorities while securing sustainable growth. Representing approximately the top 1% of all companies globally, the Frost & Sullivan Institute has identified them as ‘Companies to Action’, moving the world in the right direction.

Data#3 Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Laurence Baynham, commented, “We are delighted to receive this global recognition. Our vision is to harness the power of people and technology for a better future, and we commit to a sustainable ESG and CSR framework that supports all our stakeholders.”

The foundation of Data#3’s program consists of four pillars: people, community, ethics, and environment. Every day, and every year, it is the company’s aim to improve on all four pillars.

“We’ve made solid progress from an ESG and CSR perspective in recent years, and we have some big goals ahead of us. As we continue to grow our business financially, we believe we have an increased obligation to do what is right for the communities in which we operate,” concluded Baynham.

Data#3 recently released its Sustainability Report for Financial Year 2022. Highlights from the report include:

  • Data#3 committed to achieving net zero emissions before the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games and phase one of its three-phase process for net zero was completed.
  • Data#3 was named as a winner of the 2022 5-Star Employer of Choice award by Human Resources Director Magazine (HRD) for the seventh year in a row.
