building a more sustainable Australia
At Publift we believe in making Australia a better place for future generations – the people and the environment. We’ve worked with Sydney Dog and Cat Home, Clean Up Australia and Oz Harvest to make sure we give back more to our local community than we take.
It’s not just about the occasional volunteering day – we want to run our business in a sustainable way. From little things like all of our team using public or an eco friendly transport alternative (like peddle power) to get to work. Recycling/composting in the office and at our homes. To the big plans like our blueprint for a self sufficient, solar powered, passive office space complete with Tesla Power Walls, a fleet of electric vehicles, energy efficient components and a vegetable garden. We want to help prepare Australia for the future and we want our company values and actions to reflect this.
