The company is committed to being a leader in sustainability and ensuring that the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact are part of its culture and day-to-day operations.

Yerra has built its business culture on a commitment to serving its clients, bettering the lives of its employees and positively impacting its communities.

Yerra is honored to be a member of the UN Global Compact and looks forward to enriching its current business practices and engaging with other members both locally and globally.
"When I founded Yerra Solutions in 2013, CSR was one of the key things I wanted to "bake in". We began early with encouraging our team to participate in charitable activities as a team – from something as small as collecting books for under-privileged schools to something as daunting as the Great North Run in the North East of England," says Rajitha Boer, Founder & CEO of Yerra Solutions. "We are confident joining the UN Global Compact will further our CSR initiatives and bring us even closer to our communities." You can read more of Ms. Boer's thoughts on CSR here.
