Our purpose, vision and values

These core principles are weaved through everything we do – they guide our current work and future direction. They are the result of months of hard work and input from people across Catalyst, as well as our customers and Board members.

We do what we say we’re going to do, when we say we’re going to do it.
We never mislead.
We do the right thing.

Give respect

We treat people as they want to be treated.
We value and actively encourage diversity and inclusion.
We treasure the planet.

Be accountable

We do not hide from our responsibilities, as individuals or as a business.

We measure and report on our impact in open, relevant ways.

We take time to understand the person as well as the problem.
We share in people’s happiness – and sadness.
