ESG - Environmental, Social, Governance Policy and Impact


&Mine have always taken a proactive environmental approach to our eco-footprint. We were one of the first companies in Australia to adopt an accredited Carbon Neutral offset across the business, as well as promoting the service to our clients and network. We’ve recently adopted the Victorian State Governments TAKE2 Pledge supporting the lead role our state can play in global net zero emissions by 2050, helping to ensure our planets global temperature rise is below 2 degrees.

As a digital agency we are a poster green organisation for sustainability. From technology choices in our office environment like the minimalist use of printing and paper products of any kind and the use of laptops over desktops to reduce power consumption, through to choosing a location readily accessible via public transport for both team and clients.

We foster a collaborate work space to ensure the team feel safe in a healthy and productive working environment, reinforcing sustainably to minimise our consumer footprint.

We work with our clients and collaborate on environmental challenges, knowing the responsibility sits across organisations to protect the social and economic conditions of our community, team, customers, partners, supply chain, service providers for future generations.

Working with larger clients like Tassal, our team share in the sustainability challenges and environmental impact industry faces to maintain pro-planet best practice and have helped deliver digital products like their Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Dashboard. Working with smaller clients for example; Solar Flow – we share with our team their knowledge around the range of products in the marketplace, and how their customers and the wider community benefit from quality vs quantity. We gravitate to clients positioned with environmental, community and social responsibility as they share our philosophy on the collaborative mindset required to enact real and positive change for our planet.


Employing a strong XY Generation workforce who are digital natives, there is an inherit social enterprise and responsibility awareness across the team. &Mine foster and support this intent, which has developed rapidly around transparent community communication via social media and collaborative viral platforms we are well tuned into. We are aligned with the benefits technology can provide to organisations, especially those under resourced and challenged with the corporate-technology landscape. As such we have supported many not-for-profit, educational and community groups with pro bono or discounted services including;
