Corporate and Social Responsibility

Financial Year 2021 - 2022

 

We're supporting Mind

as our Charity of the Year

 

CSR Branding-08
 

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy outlines our efforts to give back to the world as it gives to us. At Wavenet, we are committed to our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and believe it not only makes good business sense but also complements our core values and business strategy. In setting out our CSR policy for the first time we aim to deliver gradual but continuous improvements and contributions every year. Our approach will continue to evolve as we learn lessons along the way. 

 

Every conversation, every donation supports the cause and helps keep us here – on the other end of the phone, in your local community and fighting nationally for better services and support.
