OUR IMPACT

Our Experience

CGC provides specialised engineering services for critical transport, energy and civil infrastructure projects across Australia. What sets us apart is our committed social purpose, investing half our profits into programs that support vulnerable young people in our community.

In 2019, CGC achieved a significant milestone by attaining certification as a social enterprise from Social Traders. We were the first engineering company in Australia to do so. This formal recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to improving learning opportunities for young people.

Being a business for good is at the heart of CGC. 


Our team is proud of this point of difference, reflected in our people-and-purpose focused culture. 


Our clients know that when they work with us, they too are making a sustainable, positive difference.


Our community is supported through meaningful investment in programs that support vulnerable young people to thrive. 

Our social impact aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4

Understanding social enterprises

Social enterprises trade like any other business. The difference is that they are purpose driven to create a social or environmental impact, prioritising people, planet and purpose. Certified social enterprises: - have a defined social purpose - generate the majority of revenue through trade - invest in social purpose, where community benefit outweighs private benefit.
