Since the inception of Value Match in June 2020, despite the on-going pandemic, we reflect on what has been a fantastic year for our team, partners and customers.
When we rebranded to Value Match, our approach changed as we aligned and embedded our values and become purpose focused and value driven. We took the time to understand our purpose, our priorities and our concerns, from which our values were born; Value People, Value Relationships, Sustainable Prosperity and Value the Environment. Therefore, through our people and relationships we applied our procurement expertise to enhance value created in our communities and environment.
Its been a year of developing new and existing partnerships:
- Carbon footprint – We reduced our emissions by 50% down to 6tonnnes in the past 12 months by continuing to work from home and taking more meetings over Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
- Circular Computing and WeForest – As our laptops become redundant and required replacing, we formed a partnership with Circular Computing to purchase remanufactured laptops and plant trees to offset emissions, read more about our partnership here.
- Kit Aid – Through Lindsay’s relationship with Newcastle City Juniors, Lindsay collects and redistributes old kits to children in Africa through KitAid.
- Cyber Essentials Plus – We achieved Cyber Essential Plus which demonstrates our commitment to professionalism and industry best practices.
