We believe it is important to partner not only with our customers, but also with our industry more broadly. We are active participants in a range of industry-specific groups, as well as number of organisations whose values align with ours to have an enduring impact. We also proactively seek third party sustainability certification ratings on our designs and operational performance.
And while the focus of our work will always be on delivering outstanding results for our customers and communities, we always share a sense of pride when our achievements are recognised. The awards we receive underscore our inventive spirit and drive, and demonstrates our commitment to actively contributing to our industry.
We’re proud once again to be named an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency in 2023. This achievement reflects our commitment to equal opportunity and mutual success, which is underpinned by how we support and encourage all our people to reach their full potential.
Because creating meaningful initiatives to address gender diversity is a key business priority, we place emphasis on experiences, rotations and learning through others to make the most of transferable skills and equip our people with the capabilities they need to help us grow as a business and make Charter Hall a great place to work.
Together with our long-term partner, social enterprise Two Good Co, we were proud to be named the Social Procurement Game Changer (NSW/ACT region) in the 2022 Social Traders National Game Changer Awards for our sustainable soap dispensers.
Our ongoing partnership with Two Good Co continues to create opportunities for women to regain their financial independence and confidence, with paid employment and support. The revenue from the soap sales has provided hundreds of hours of paid work for some of the most vulnerable women in our community through the organisations Work Work program.
Charter Hall was awarded Firm of the Year: Australia and named finalists in three other categories by Private Equity Real Estate (PERE) 2021 Global Awards – one of the industry’s most prestigious honours and an award recognised and respected throughout the world's real estate private equity industry.
Firm of the Year recognises our expertise developed over 30 years in accessing, deploying, managing and investing equity across core real estate sectors – Office, Retail, Industrial & Logistics and Social Infrastructure – for the benefit of our investor and tenant customers and the communities in which we operate.
Charter Hall was recognised as one of Australia and New Zealand's Most Innovative Companies for the second consecutive year, ranking first on the Property, Construction and Transport List, published by the Australian Financial Review and BOSS Magazine annually.
The recognition was for Lease Easy, our custom-built platform, which manages the end-to-end retail specialty leasing process. The Australian-first solution cut the processing time in half for new leases, enabling our people to spend their time on more value-add work and, importantly, enabling our customers to start generating income sooner.
