  • Charity of Choice

    Our Charity of Choice is St Vincent's Institute of Medical Research (SVI).

    We've chosen SVI as our preferred charity because SVI conducts research into diseases that affect many Australians, including cancer, type 1 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. This medical research provides the necessary building blocks that help identify the cause of diseases and how to prevent and treat them.

    GS1 Australia has a rewarding Workplace Giving Program where staff can donate directly to SVI.

    Through the Go Green program staff gain an awareness of how to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, staff are encouraged to use recycling stations provided throughout our offices, recycle batteries and printer cartridges, reduce electricity consumption by turning off computer screens when leaving work and limit printing of paper. 

    GS1 Australia participates in audits performed by the Carbon Reduction Institute.

    Our Melbourne office, completed in December 2015, is a 5 green star sustainable building.
