RaboDirect is part of the Rabobank Group - and shares their mission and values about becoming a sustainable business. Rabobank recognises that doing business in today's global environment involves much more than just producing financial returns. We believe in achieving a balance between the social, ethical, environmental and financial aspects of business, while still taking into account the interests of our clients, our employees and our stakeholders.
Rabobank is committed to leaving a small footprint on the planet. In an attempt to minimise the impact our business has on the environment, we have developed a program that we refer to as Rabobank and the Environment, to ensure that our work practices are sustainable. Directly or indirectly these initiatives give all employees the opportunity to influence the way we leave the environment for future generations.
Through the Community Leave and Workplace Giving initiatives, employees are encouraged to support local causes that are of interest and importance to them. They offer all employees the opportunity to actively participate in their community in the way that they choose, by either sharing their time and skills, or by making a financial contribution.
The RaboDirect Rebels and the 5 Star Engagement Program
When RaboDirect decided to partner with the Rebels we knew we had found a club with very similar values to ours, where genuinely participating in the community would be core and not just an add-on, and where winning off the pitch was as important as victories on it.
The RaboDirect Rebels 5 Star Engagement Program
The RaboDirect Rebels 5 Star Engagement Program has been the cornerstone of ingraining the Rebels' philosophy into the Victorian community.
Every player is allocated a rugby club, a school, charity partner and business to work with. Not only is this a great way of giving back to the community but also an invaluable source of learning for the players as they learn to develop their skills beyond rugby.
Conversion for Clubs
Rabobank has been a cooperative since the bank was founded in the Netherlands in 1898 and, to this day, supporting and leaving an enduring legacy in the community is a principle which very much guides us.
The Conversions for Clubs Program has been the cornerstone of ingraining Rabobank and the Rebels' philosophy into the Victorian community.
We've been genuinely delighted at the success of this program and it has kicked in some much needed funding to Victorian rugby and shone a light on the clubs who support rugby from junior to senior players week in, week out.
This season, clubs have received almost $50,000 from this program. I would like to thank all the Victorian Rugby Clubs for participating and we look forward to expanding the program next season.
