Environmental, Social and Governance



Our purpose is to build trust in a digital world.

Our solutions ensure that customers are who they say they are, where they are. Every day, we prevent crimes, such as fraud and money laundering, which can have a hugely negative social and financial impact on the people and businesses they impact. Our accurate and reliable address data prevents failed, and therefore repeated deliveries. This reduces additional and unnecessary fuel usage and enables crucial deliveries to arrive on time.

At GBG, we build solutions that protect individuals. Safeguarding our customers and their consumers from negative environmental and social impacts is at the heart of the solutions we offer.

Target setting

Diversity & inclusion

  • Be carbon neutral in our own operations by 2023.
  • Reduce our Scope 1 and 2 carbon intensity by revenue by 10% by FY25.
