Outlook is excited to receive the Social Enterprise Business Model Innovation Award from Social Traders. Social Traders Australia is an organisation that brokers relationships between social enterprises and business and government buyers to help address some of society’s most pressing social needs.
As a certified social enterprise, Outlook Environmental provides opportunities, direct employment and support for people with disabilities. We work with customers to deliver commercial, environmental and social outcomes through the diversion of waste from landfill. Around half of Outlook Environmental staff have a disability or come from a disadvantaged background and for every 150 tonnes of recyclable materials collected, one job is created within the organisation.
Paul Stevens, Environmental Operations Manager of Outlook says “The more contracts we pick up the more people we employ.” Outlook Environmental now have multiple contracts with another buyer member McConnell Dowell – a relationship that first began at a Social Traders networking event.
