We do not tolerate any form of unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying, and our employees are trained to recognise and mitigate potential bias towards any employee. We believe in equal pay for work of equal value and closing the gender pay gap. Therefore, Downer is proud to partner with CAF and we are committed to helping them achieve their mission to improve labour practices in the cleaning industry.

Cbus Property’s Sustainability Strategy aims to position our company as a world leader in the sustainable delivery and management of commercial buildings. A key focus area of the strategy is to mitigate risks of modern slavery within our supply chains. As the cleaning industry is inherently exposed to modern slavery risks, Cbus Property has partnered with the Cleaning Accountability Framework (CAF) to take a proactive approach towards ensuring that it promotes decent work for all cleaners across its commercial building portfolio. Cbus Property has committed to certifying its entire portfolio with the CAF 3-star building certification standard by 2022.
