Treating people fairly

Empowering our communities and building a diverse culture

We want to break barriers, by building a culture in which gategroup’s broad and diverse communities can thrive. Our social ambitions and targets relate to Health, Safety and Worker Protection, Community, Social Impact & Labour Rights, and Diversity, Equality, Inclusivity & Wellbeing.

Health, Safety and Worker Protection

Ambition: Create an accountable, zero-incident culture by 2030

Goals:

  • Cultivate a safe and welcoming working environment to continually reduce incidents with a target of 50% reduction on 2022 baseline by 2030.

Community, Social Impact & Labour Rights

  • Engage with our host communities to provide good opportunities to work, and a sustainable path to grow professionally and prosper in their careers.

Diversity, Equality, Inclusivity & Wellbeing

Ambition: Create and deploy an industry-leading EDI improvement action plan by 2025
