Corporate Social Responsibility
Our world better
Whether supporting humanitarian relief, social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic or managing flood defences, our team delivers results that make a real difference to people’s lives. Our motivation is rooted in our desire to help users realise the power of their data to make better decisions that benefit us all – from enabling the emergency services response, to ensuring the safe supply of water and gas.
We know that, together, we can make our world better. That’s why we’re pleased to support our people who each year volunteer their time, energy and skills for global good causes. The Missing Maps Project, which aims to map the most crisis-prone parts of the world, and the humanitarian mapping charity, MapAction are two organisations that are particularly close to our hearts. We’re also enthusiastic fundraisers and regularly participate in Sport Relief and Christmas jumper day. More recently, our team raised money to mark 72 years of the NHS.
As a business born and bred in Cambridge, we also want to give something back to our community. Organising head office events in partnership with local businesses and entrepreneurs is just one example of our commitment to our home city.
Our raised funds have gone to charities such as Cancer Council, Red Nose Day, Save the Children, The Trussell Trust, MapAction, Macmillan Cancer Support, Oxfam, Age UK, Philippines Typhoon Appeal, WinterComfort and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
The aim of the Missing Maps Project is to map the most crisis-prone parts of the world.
We're involved in running events for volunteers to help map the Mamou Region in Guinea. Our efforts are currently supporting the Guinea Red Cross (GRC) develop integrated, high-quality development programmes in the region.
Missing Maps can help directly improve the lives of some of the planet’s most vulnerable people and we're delighted to be involved in supporting this excellent project.
We hold Missing Maps events every month so no matter whether you’re an experienced Humanitarian Mapper or have never done anything like this before, come along to learn more about OpenStreetMap, GIS and the Missing Maps project.
