Sustainability & Social Value
gbpartnerships is committed to ensuring a sustainable future through responsible business activities. We are actively working towards reducing carbon emissions, achieving Net Zero by 2030, and, making a positive contribution to the communities in which we work.
We are leading the way through incorporating carbon reduction initiatives into our work with partners to achieve NHS Net Zero targets. With the teams’ expert knowledge of BREEAM Excellent, Passivhaus and Net Zero Carbon designs informing the ‘fossil fuel free’, highly insulated designs for all current and future projects.
gbp’s key value of being “accountable to all” has driven an increased focus on Social Value, committing to specific measures in contracts and frameworks in relation to training, apprenticeships and local supply chain.
This work is captured in gbp’s 2022’s Social Value Report, verified by the Social Value Portal. It builds upon the four days of volunteering time staff can provide during work time, thanks to gbp’s volunteering policy and a total of c.£30,000 in charitable donations made in 2022 through the gbp foundation.
