Corporate Social Responsibility

At Absoft, being a good corporate citizen is inherent in everything we do. We take our corporate responsibility towards the environment and local community very seriously. The Company commits a fixed proportion of its annual profits to the staff-led Charities Committee who maintain our relationships with local charities and fundraising groups. The Charities Committee also encourages additional fund raising activities.

Recent charity donations have included:

 ANCHOR 

 Pound for Piper 

 DAWGS 

 Northsound Cash for Kids 

 British Heart Foundation

 Hounds for Heroes

 Marie Curie Cancer Care

 Concordia 

 NEJCA 

 Equine Grass Sickness Fund 

 ARI Roof Garden Project 

 Basketball Scotland 

We strive to minimise the impact our operations have on the environment.

We are committed to the protection of our surroundings and to achieve this we actively follow the principles of ReduceReuseRecycle in all of our activities.  We also provide adequate control of the environmental risks arising from our work activities and regularly consult our employees and others on matters affecting our environmental performance.

We are also members of the Bright Green Business Network whom provide us with support and materials on environmentally friendly practices and advise us on how we can continue to improve our environmental practices and minimise our footprint.

Absoft enjoys a strong connection with Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University.  We have recruited a number of RGU placement students and graduates to our staff over the years, and since 2002 we have sponsored the University’s Entrepreneurship Lecture which is held annually at Aberdeen Business School
