Vale - Jeff Gittus 1959 - 2019

The Active family, and much of the Australian print and manufacturing industry is mourning the loss of Jeff Gittus, founder of Active Display Group.

Jeff passed away peacefully on Friday 1st February after undergoing his second lung transplant a little over 2 weeks earlier.

Jeff founded Active Sites Alive in 1985 after establishing his own signage business from home only 5 years earlier. Through Jeff’s vision, personality and nature, Active has provided employment for thousands of people for over 30 years.

It’s an extremely sad time for the people at Active, our clients and the retail marketing industry at large. Jeff was part of many industry organisations, including a pioneering founder of POPAI (now Shop!) in Australia.

Jeff considered everyone at Active to be his family, and family was at the heart of what he valued most. Jeff, you were loved, admired, and respected like no other in our industry and business. You leave a huge hole in our hearts, but your legacy at Active remains.

Doing the right thing never felt so good

On Friday 3rd August, we had FSC Chain of Custody Auditor's on site at Mulgrave & Dandenong South to audit our FSC procedures for re-certification. Last week we received the great news that we have maintained our FSC certification!

What is FSC Chain of Custody?

FSC is the Forestry Stewardship Council, which is an organization devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests (e.g. remove a tree - replant a tree). There are also strict rules about not removing trees where there are endangered species, no use of child labour as well as other moral, ethical and OHS requirements.

Chain of Custody certification and the use of the FSC logo is assurance that what ACTIVE produce is made with or contains wood that comes from FSC certified well managed forests. There are three types of FSC labels that Active use, FSC 100%, FSC Mix and FSC Recycled. To ensure compliance, every piece of paperwork associated with the FSC claim job requires reference to the FSC claim.

R U OK? DAY

 

R U OK? Day is Thursday 14 September – a national reminder that we’ve all got what it takes to ask, “are you ok?” and support those struggling with life.

R U OK? Is a suicide prevention charity founded by one of WPP AUNZ's own. The late Gavin Larkin ran The Brand Agency and wanted to use his creative powers as a force for good. After losing his father to suicide in the mid-1990s, he knew he had to do something that would protect other families from experiencing the pain his endured.
