Our Approach

Gamma’s approach to our Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy and processes.

Our Approach

Responding to our stakeholders

A sustainable business is key to longer-term value creation for our stakeholders, employees, and customers. It is a part of how we operate in Gamma and helps guide us when balancing our financial performance with other stakeholder interests.

What is sustainability
“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”
The UN
Sustainability

Core to our operation

We believe that sustainability is at the heart of longer-term value creation for our stakeholders, employees, and customers. It’s a core part of how we operate at Gamma and is key to how we balance our financial performance with other stakeholder interests.

In October 2020, Gamma recognised that environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices and performance were becoming more important to our employees, investors, customers, supply chain partners, and the communities in which we operate.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

"A universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity."

Gamma adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals in January 2020, identifying four where we felt we could make the most meaningful contribution. These goals, along with input from our key stakeholders, have formed the foundation on which we have developed our environmental, social and ethical policies and will influence how we do business in future.

Our UN SDGs

Goal 5: Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all Women and Girls

Gamma is committed to achieving positive outcomes in relation to gender equality, either through formal policy or via our social plan. We work closely with schools through Hi-Tech Horizons and Speakers for Schools, with activities promoting women and girls into technology careers.

Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

We are committed to developing our people with skills for the future, including future digital technologies. Our apprenticeship programme encourages the younger generation into full and productive employment, while our graduate programme, launched early in 2022, guarantees a full-time role on successful completion of the two-year programme.

Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities

Ensuring our current and future employee’s wellbeing is a cornerstone of our Gamma values. Feeling included and valued in the workplace, having a voice, and feeling empowered to make decisions, all drive our ‘stronger together’ culture.

Goal 13: Climate Action

We are striving to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and to reduce any negative impact that we have on the environment. Our carbon net-zero commitment demonstrates a clear response to taking measurable climate action – a key issue material to our stakeholders, our business, and our employees.
