Our Approach

We are committed to a broad range of ESG commitments that elevate our business, create value for our investors, support our employees and customers, and show respect to the local communities in which we work. ESG is our corporate responsibility and an opportunity to promote good business ethics and focus on a more sustainable and resilient future.

Our focus on improving efficiency across our businesses through the use and integration of data and technology is what sets us apart. As a result, we are able to reduce consumption, better manage assets and invest capital more efficiently, which in turn generates better returns, reduces costs and supports our global employees.

GLP’s Sustainability Principles

At GLP, building businesses and investing responsibly means embedding ESG into our investment and decision making processes. This helps us to identify and eliminate ESG risks and means that:

We understand and identify how GLP’s activities can impact material ESG factors and how these can affect our reputation, capital value and stakeholders;

We focus on how we can best manage our workforce, whether it is our own employees or contractors and suppliers;

We recognize how we can work with the communities where we invest and operate businesses and how we can enhance our presence through economic development, limiting our environmental impact and seeking a community’s license to operate.

We consider ESG as part of the development, acquisition or investment decision. Our different teams across investment management, asset management and corporate management are empowered to prioritise, act, track and monitor the sustainability performance of our assets and in certain instances collaborate with our workforce, partners and communities. Consistent ESG performance across an asset’s lifestyle helps us to actively manage the sustainability of assets.

Our mission is to build sustainable businesses and generate attractive risk-adjusted returns to shareholders and investors over the long term, while providing exceptional investment and operational services that enhance value. We focus on enhancing value through superior asset management and effective operations. And improve the efficiency of our business and assets through the integration of technology and innovation including data analytics, robotics, automated clearance systems, digital loading docks, smart sorting, telematics, energy-efficient fleet management systems, Internet of Things, resource conservation and renewable energy.

GLP is committed to maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance to enhance corporate performance and accountability. To demonstrate its commitment, GLP has established well-defined policies and processes to protect its stakeholders’ interests and our leadership team recognizes the importance of strong corporate governance and the maintenance of high standards of accountability that are woven into GLP’s business.

We continually review and refine our processes in light of best practice, consistent with the needs and circumstances of the group.

We maintain a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption and require all management and employees to comply with our Code of Business Conduct at all times and provide annual certification.

We aim to incorporate health and well-being throughout our organization and assets in support of our employees, customers and the communities in which we work. By focusing on promoting well-being we believe we can enhance an individual’s livelihood, increase motivation and productivity as well as bring communities together.
