Sustainable development is…. “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”
-Gro Harlem Brundtland- (Norway,1987).
One of Outback’s integral philosophies is to be aware how we impact people, our community and the environment. We formulate our companies and expect our associates to act sensitively and responsibly- Because we believe responsible business ethics isn’t just an ‘add-on’ marketing term –it’s integral to our entire culture and for future generations. Sustainable and responsible development is not only a pre-requisite to building healthier, stable communities but also vital to promoting healthy economies.
We strive to provide products and services that are built with durability, quality, versatility and true value in their design philosophy. From utilizing the very best synthetic, long life-low friction lubricants in servicing our vehicle division to inserting the warmest and most durable European down feathers in our survival sleeping bags, every product we build, import and export must embody a long-life, lower impact concept.
Too often today, our global community is exposed to a "throw away", "disposable products" world. The hidden energy and by-products required to build, maintain and finally dispose of ‘worn out’ or undesirable products is extreme. Outback looks to reduce energy and solid waste by importing high quality and long lasting products from the get go. Our foreign vehicle import division is a small example- Quality vehicles, that were engineered to last decades and that are already 15+ years old when imported by us. They are then tuned up to full factory spec, corrosion proofed and given a new life- some will likely live another 10-15years with reliable service for a total service life of over 25 years.
Outback Group is committed to supporting sustainable development projects and youth outdoor education programs. Responsible land use/social planning and education starts in our own backyard.
