At Possibl, we believe in making a difference beyond just the core services we provide. Because it's up to all of us to drive bigger change in a world where entrenched inequality exists and where the environment in which we live is under threat.
We pride ourselves on our socially and environmentally responsible practices and, as a team, we dedicate our time to as many pro-bono or volunteer initiatives as we can each year.
As part of our Make it Possibl initiative, we have two key areas we actively look to support - areas that are close to our hearts and where we believe we can make a difference:Carbon reduction
Big polluters need Emissions Allowances to pollute. These allowances are regulated and finite. C2Zero allows good companies and people to take Emissions Allowances out of circulation, so they can never be used to pollute. We're working with C2Zero
with an aim to make property transactions carbon-negative, because as the team says, neutral is not enough.Accessible and affordable housing
There is a shortage of over 600,000 social and affordable homes in Australia. This is projected to grow to over 1 million by 2036.With over 116,000 people homeless in Australia, crisis accommodation services are turning away more than half of those seeking new accommodation, mainly due to this lack of accommodation and decline in public housing stock.
Every night, more than 116,000 people sleep homeless in Australia. An additional 1.5 million people live in housing distress.
The problem of homelessness goes beyond not having access to safe shelter – it can have a devastating impact on a person’s health, wellbeing, and their ability to access work, education and community.
We believe that every Australian deserves to have a home where they feel safe and secure and we want to lead with purpose to help change the system. We're actively looking to partner with specialist services to amplify their impact and meet an urgent need in the housing sector and our community at large.
