As the Holy Month of Ramadan comes to an end, CARAS would like to congratulate our Muslim team members and clients on the completion of this month. In light of the pandemic, the 2021 Ramadan has proven difficult for many around the world and serves as a constant reminder to give back to the less fortunate. In the spirit of Ramadan, CARAS has engaged in several charity events over this month and continues to ensure that corporate responsibility is at the crux of every major decision. With that being said, we wish the Muslim community a blessed Eid and joyous celebrations!
Since December 2019, CARAS has participated in the Defence Industry Internship Program (DIIP), which increases the awareness of career opportunities and provide student interns with the opportunity to gain real-world experience. The Program matches small to medium-sized defence industry enterprises (SMEs) with students nearing the end of an undergraduate engineering degree for a paid 12-week internship. For the 2020-2021 program, CARAS warmly welcomed Sarah Healey and Mansour Adie to be part of our team. They were an excellent addition to CARAS' team. CARAS hopes they will achieve their planned goals and wishes them the best in their future ventures.
“We dream about cleaning up the country” Envirobank Recycling. CARAS is happy to announce the official partnership with Envirobank Recycling. The recycling of plastic, aluminium, glass, and liquid paperboard is vital to preserving sustainable systems. Thus, we have decided to act in today’s sustainable global movement. By collecting and sending suitable containers to Envirobank Recycling, CARAS will raise funds which go to a charity organisation nominated by the CARAS team. Established in 2008, Envirobank is an Indigenous-owned company committed to achieving positive environmental and social impact by rewarding cans and bottles recycling. According to the National Waste Policy (2018), Australia recycles 37 million tonnes and recovers energy from 2 million tonnes of the 67 million tonnes of waste produced per annum; this means that we recover 58% of all generated waste as a country. In CARAS, we believe that waste can be used as a resource that impulses a circular economy. Hence we help with consistent steps towards sustainability.
CARAS recently engaged with Better Business Partnership (BBP), an organisation funded by the North Sydney and Willoughby City Councils. BBP has been promoting and supporting local businesses since 2009 to become more successful through sustainability. CARAS was awarded the badges of WASTE, WATER, TRANSPORT, STAFF, BYE-BYE PLASTIC, PURCHASING, and BUSINESS HEALTH. Big shout out to Lin Ningthoujam, who took the lead in getting the certification!
Congratulation to Linthoingambi (Lin) Ningthoujam and the CARAS team on obtaining re-certification of our Integrated Management System from QMS Certification Services - Australia.

At CARAS, our people are our business. A decade running a business provides many and varied challenges - financial, technical and operational.

We acknowledge the contribution of our fantastic clients and say Thank You to all of our staff, past and present who have enabled us to achieve this 10 year milestone.
CARAS recognises the growing concern of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our daily lives and how the current pandemic is changing the way we work and live. As we continue to conduct the monthly safety audits for all the PCs on the Project, CARAS is committed to observing and implementing all possible measures to contain the COVID-19 transmissions as advised by the Ministry of Health, NSW.
The CARAS team were lucky enough to be able to celebrate St. Patrick's day this year just before the COVID 19 restrictions were implemented. While an Australian company, we like to celebrate our Irish connections and have the "craic" with our clients, suppliers and team.
