We believe that good corporate governance is essential for building a successful and sustainable business in the long-term interests of all our stakeholders.

It is our view that trust, responsibility and ethics are the cornerstones of an effective organisation and we actively promote a culture of honesty, integrity and respect across the business. We look to uphold human rights, encourage inclusion, diversity and equality and promote good governance.

We formed an ESG Committee to ensure we have the people and governance in place for ESG to be central to our decision-making, which I am proud to chair. The Committee means that ESG considerations have Board-level oversight and involvement. This equips us to deliver on our ambitions and makes sure we are accountable for our commitments.

Our focus areas

We created our ESG Committee to reinforce our governance over ESG-related activities. The Committee represents the Board in defining our ESG strategy and makes sure we take a systemic approach to reviewing relevant practices and initiatives.

The Board and its committees oversee and are ultimately responsible for ethical issues. We fully comply with the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code. To read our compliance statement click here.

As well as maintaining the standards you would expect – ISO27001, Cyber Essentials Plus and PCI DSS compliance – we have also implemented a 24/7 security operations centre this year. The centre responds to any event or notification to uphold GBG’s security posture. This means we have eyes and ears on the threats and threat actors that are most likely to impact our business.
