Corporate Social Responsibility
At Visionscape, responsibility for the environment and the communities we serve is an active part of our culture. We work with the highest environmental principles and fully embrace the concept and practice of sustainability in terms of environmental, educational, people and societal responsibility.
Embedded into our business strategy, we place the environment at the core of our CSR approach, in addition to our commitment to improve sustainable development for all people and local communities.
EARN FOR THE EARTH
Earn for the Earth is a waste miners empowerment initiative. Thousands of waste miner communities exist in landfills across developing nations. These communities, consisting of thousands of miners, expose themselves to poor living and working conditions, affecting their health and wellbeing. The initiative empowers and enlightens these marginalized communities.
We seek to empower those who work at the bottom rung of the value chain by dignifying and empowering them with the tools to do so in a safe and sustainable manner. We provide them with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as vests, gloves and masks that protect the citizens from hazardous waste.
VISIONSCAPE ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGRAMME (VEEP)
The Visionscape Environmental Education Programme was developed as an umbrella to a series of environmental education initiatives. Promoting environmental literacy in the communities we operate in.
VEEP: Environmental Literacy
The environmental literacy initiative is aimed at promoting and empowering school age children on the environment and the effects of urban sanitisation and waste management. The initiative will also provide stationary, supplies and educational videos to educational institutions across our servicing communities.
VEEP: Recycle Education
The Visionscape Recycle Stations are free recycling bins provided to schools and public spaces across the communities we operate in. The initiative focuses on promotiing the ‘3Rs’ (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and instils the importance of waste reduction and recycling to reduce litter and landfill.
VEEP: The Visionscape Training Insititute
We believe it is essential to invest in impactful knowledge. Our training facilities cater to the learning needs of our staff. Our specialized training programs promote hands on learning opportunities and are developed by qualified faculty which include experienced financial experts.
Our objective is to build on local content, by providing training programs for personal and professional development.
THE PROSPERITY PLATFORM: Waste Mining Commerce
The Prosperity Platform develops and supports the entrepreneurial activities of IDPs (Internally Displaced People) in conflict zones, by providing reusable items gleaned from landfills. The materials are professionally cleaned and transported to the women in conflict areas to be creatively used and repurposed for sale.
The platform’s primary focus is socio-economic empowerment for women and their families as they transition into society and resume their lives post-trauma.
VISIONSCAPE SPORTS PROGRAMME
At Visionscape, we find it essential to help our workforce achieve their best health potential as well as helping them achieve their professional goals. We run a comprehensive yearlong sports program available to all employees, giving them the chance to pick up a sport and compete in teams against each other, throughout the year. The aim is to promote the importance of healthy living and an active lifestyle.
