Invictus Games

Goodman is making space for our wounded warriors at the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. As the Official Warehousing Logistics Supplier, we’re proud to be making space for greatness.

The healing power of sport

The Invictus Games are an international adaptive sports event for wounded and injured veteran service personnel. The games highlight the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation, and generate a wider understanding of and respect for those who serve their country. 

The Sydney Games will bring together more than 500 competitors from 18 nations to compete in 11 adaptive sports over 8 exciting days of competition.

Making space for greatness

It's not enough to simply wish for greatness. We need to commit to it for the long term with determination and drive. At Goodman, we understand the world is constantly changing and to be part of the future we must remain agile and open to new ways of working. It's in this way we aim to give our customers the space they need to succeed by providing sustainable solutions and unparalleled service in high-quality locations. We actively pursue the very best people. And we give those people the space they need to grow and push us all a little further.

We care about the future of the planet and all the people in it. We believe sustainability is our responsibility and we choose to work with people and organisations who feel the same. It's one of the reasons we partner with charities all over the world who are striving to make a difference for those who can't always see a way forward. Greatness is not a singular pursuit. Nor is it one that is easy to reach. But at Goodman our vision is to make it a possibility for everyone by making space for it in everything we do.

Take a look behind the scenes of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. As the Official Warehousing Logistics Supplier we’ve been capturing all the preparations and excitement taking place in the warehouse as the team prepares for the Games. See it all unfold here.

Goodman Foundation

The Goodman Foundation's focus is on social change and improving the lives of those less privileged in our community by providing practical assistance by way of capital expenditure for equipment, funding of programmes and projects, warehousing or office space or the expertise of our people. Many of our community partners, in addition to receiving a Foundation grant, benefit from fundraising and volunteer support from Goodman staff in our good+heart programme along with regular payroll donations through the Goodman good+deeds workplace giving programme.

Space for children's health and safety

"Research successes since Goodman's involvement have seen the rate of cerebral palsy fall from 1/400 to 1/600 births". 

Goodman is passionate about ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of children. We support many charities around the world focused on this cause including the Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA), SOS Children's Villages, Stepping Stone House, Little Olive Foundation, The Shepherd Centre, Raise Foundation and Humpty Dumpty Foundation. Our support ranges from providing physical space, supporting operations and purchasing equipment, to our people volunteering, mentoring and providing other help.

CPA provides family-centred therapies, life skills programmes, equipment and support for people and their families living with cerebral palsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. It drives international research into the prevention, treatment and cure of cerebral palsy through the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation.

Goodman has supported CPA and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation to become one of the leading independent funders of cerebral palsy research globally, funding over $36 million in research grants across 300 projects in the past 12 years. Goodman is the exclusive global partner of CPA's major fundraiser, Steptember. 

 

Supporting health and wellbeing

Goodman is the Founding Partner of The Fred Hollows Foundation in Hong Kong and funds eye care projects.

The Fred Hollows Foundation provides sustainable eye care services for rural, poor and ethnic minority communities around the world.

Goodman has funded two projects in China to build eye health screening and education systems. The first, completed in February 2018, in Xingtang, Hebei, has been extended for a further 12 months.

"Goodman has funded the Xingtang project which has screened 112,736 people, Trained 805 doctors in eye care courses, Provided 440 screening kits and Trained one cataract surgeon and two nurses to perform cataract surgery".

Towards zero hunger

"Without Goodman's support, OzHarvest could not have delivered almost 100 million meals, helped 1,000 charities and saved 31,000 tonnes of food from landfill"

Goodman provides warehouse space, vehicles and equipment, and our teams volunteer and raise funds to support organisations that reduce hunger and food wastage, including OzHarvest, KiwiHarvest, UKHarvest, Feeding Hong Kong and Second Harvest Foodbank of Orange County, USA.

OzHarvest collects quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivers it to more than 1,000 charities supporting people in need.

Making space for responsible consumption

"Goodman has helped enable Good360 Australia to collect more than $50 million in brand new goods to be redistributed to over 800 charities".

Goodman supports charities such as Thread Together and Good360 Australia, which redirect excess goods to charities while reducing waste.

Good360 Australia connects surplus brand new goods from businesses, such as clothes, toys, school and office supplies, personal care and household goods to charities and Australians who need them, while improving environmental outcomes. This amounts to over 3.6 million items from microwaves to toiletries and nappies. It has distributed more than $22.3 million in critical goods to people in need in Australia, which also has a huge environmental impact as these products are saved from landfill.

Goodman's support with property space saved millions of dollars for Good360 Australia so it could use those resources for core programmes. The charity also uses the Goodman supplied warehouse to run traineeships for the long-term unemployed.
