CGI in the UK is committed to contributing to the protection of the environment. And, as a high-growth company, CGI understands that this must not come at the expense of the communities where we do business or of the environment in general. We continue to strive to become carbon neutral as a business through responsible and environmentally oriented operating practices.
Our sustainability objectives are as follows:
In addition to building on our existing environmental programme, we have recently introduced a UK-wide member driven “10-Point Planet Plan”, to allow us to continually reduce our environmental impact, this includes how we will increase the use of public transport, increase our commitment to tree planting and continuing to drive down our use of plastics. Members from across the business are leading on different aspects of the programme which will be delivered in our 2020 financial year. As part of this plan we are also planting 5500 trees – one for each of our members at Talla and Gameshope, on a site of previously farmed land in the Scottish Borders. In addition, to support the wellbeing of our communities, our members are working with parks, schools, care homes and nature reserves to plant over 2500 trees across the UK from Glasgow, to Wootton Bassett to Bridgend.
