Substation33 is a Brisbane-based social enterprise that has operated since 2012.
It was founded to respond to the need to provide a workplace where people from long term unemployment and marginalised backgrounds could gain confidence and skills to transition to sustainable employment.
A second motivator was to address the increasing amount of electronic equipment going to landfill – to recycle, repurpose and reuse e-waste thereby reducing the negative impact on the environment.
Over a decade on, Substation33 is a vibrant and successful social enterprise. Employing approximately 40 staff, since 2019 Substation33 has assisted more than 500 people in their transition to mainstream employment and/or training and further education.
Substation33 is well known for their inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds and abilities.
SubStation33 is committed to improving our social and ecological environment, working with others to provide opportunities for disadvantaged people and who are devoted to repurposing e-waste into innovative products.
KJR’s Brisbane office donates its used hardware (screens, laptops, cables, digital phones) to Substation33 for recycling or repurposing.
By partnering with Substation33, KJR is assisting people from marginalised backgrounds with sustainable employment opportunities plus reducing the negative impact on our environment .
