Corporate Responsibility (ESG)

We are always aiming to establish trust between businesses and their customers; work and act responsibly; empower and prioritise our people; create broader societal value and protect the environment.

A constant focus on corporate responsibility underpins the way we do business at GBG and is a key driver of our culture, behaviour and ethical practices.

Strong corporate responsibility is deeply embedded in our day-to-day activities and integral to our business model and strategy.

We passionately believe in the fundamental importance of effectively managing governance, social and environmental risks, as well as harnessing opportunities, and are committed to the continuous improvement of our corporate responsibility practices. Whilst current terminology usually refers to environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’), we have purposefully reordered these indicators to reflect their relative materiality to our business.

At GBG, our Board has overall responsibility of corporate responsibility, with developments and initiatives being led by the Chief Executive, supported by the Executive Team.
