    • Conflict of Interest Policy.
    • Supplier Relationship Policy.
    • Speak Up Policy.
    • Anti Bribery and Corruption Policy.

    • Modern Slavery Statement.
  • We believe that when we celebrate and promote diversity of community and thought we create a workplace where people feel valued, have a sense of belonging, can contribute without fear of discrimination or retaliation, and have equal and equitable access to opportunities.

    Our ambition is to lead by example, that Niche be known for being open, welcoming and inclusive so that employees, clients, suppliers want to be part of our community.

  • Acknowledgement

    Niche is committed to reconciliation and acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.

    Our reconciliation journey

    Niche has developed a Reflect RAP with Reconciliation Australia. In late 2023, we received the conditional endorsement from Reconciliation Australia. Throughout 2024, we will be delivering on the actions we have committed to in our Reflect RAP.

  • We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our employees. We recognise that the mental health and wellbeing of our staff is key to organisational success and sustainability.

    We recognise and accept our moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work environment for workers, contractors, clients and visitors for the prevention of work-related injury and ill health. We achieve this by elimination of hazards and reduction of risk.

    This commitment and implementation of management measures extends to ensuring that our operations and activities do not place the local community or environment at risk of injury, illness or damage.

  • Niche is committed to responsible environmental management, sustainability and protection of the natural environment in our workplace.

    We recognise and accept our moral and legal responsibility to ensure that our activities, equipment, materials and services are designed to protect and enhance the environment and the communities in which we operate.

  • At Niche, we care about creating a sustainable future and to demonstrate our commitment we have been minimising the impact of our operations through offsetting our carbon emissions since 2018. We are now in the process of achieving certification through Climate Active, a government program that supports national climate policy by driving voluntary climate action.

    Over the past six years we have made the commitment to offset our residual carbon emissions by purchasing carbon credits from both biodiversity and heritage projects in Australia, working with Greening Australia, Greenfleet and the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation.

    The Karlantijpa North Savanna Burning project, sourced from the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation, uses traditional controlled savanna burning methodologies to help reduce large scale forest fires and reduce GHG emissions caused by these large scall fires. The project provides environmental, economic, social and cultural benefits to the community.

    We have also recently begun a partnership with Greening Australia on behalf of the Tasmanian Land Conservancy. The New Leaf project has converted 28,000ha of previously log-able forest to a protected forest in Tasmania. From serene, ancient old-growth rainforests in Tasmania’s north-east to sub-alpine forests, stunning lowland forests and intimate forested valleys in the state’s Central Highlands.

    By purchasing these credits, Niche has invested in carbon farming projects that support rangers and Traditional Owners manage country; contributed to the vital reforestation of native trees; acted on climate change; and strengthened the Australian economy.

  • Niche operates in a manner that consistently meets or exceeds the quality standard we have set for ourselves, and promised to our stakeholders: Excellence in Your Environment.

    To achieve this, we are committed to continuous improvement of our management systems, operations and the deliverables and services we provide. Across every team and in every project, we consistently monitor our performance and improve our standards to ensure we achieve our fullest potential.

    Our commitment to providing a high level of service to our clients is maintained through professionalism and a can-do attitude built from our values of Care, Excellence, Integrity and Trust.

    Customer satisfaction drives us to implement action that exceeds our clients’ expectations.
