就业

作为英国的主要雇主,拥有47,500年的同事, gpk电子 is committed to promoting skills and employment opportunities for all members of society, 特别关注学徒制, 多样性与实际生活工资(RLW). 作为生活工资基金会认可的gpk电子提供者, all bids for new business include RLW rates as the preferred option. 与此同时, 米提在整个行业雇佣了700多名学徒, including 150 women who are completing technical engineering apprenticeships.

责任

This includes an ambitious target to increase the amount it spends with VCSEs by 7.5倍到2英镑.在2024/25财年前达到2500万. 帮助实现这一目标, gpk电子已与英国社会企业(SEUK)签约, which is supporting gpk电子 in identifying new VCSEs to include within it’s supply chain. gpk电子 has also committed to spend 33% of its supplier costs with SMEs over the next five years, 从目前的29%上升. 仅在过去的一年, gpk电子 has already increased its SME spending by £17 million and for its public 部门 contracts gpk电子 spends 45% with SME suppliers.

社区

To ensure the business has a positive impact on the communities where it works, gpk电子 has set targets in three key areas: supporting the armed forces, 健康和幸福, 和同事做志愿者. In recognition of the significant strides gpk电子 has made in supporting the armed forces, 如引入 额外的10天带薪假期 为其预备役部队,它被授予 金盾雇主嘉许计划 2020年7月.

与此同时, gpk电子还将增加员工的志愿gpk电子时间, 目标是达到相当于2的值,000 days of volunteering for its six volunteering partners – The British Heart Foundation, 负责照顾的好, 教育和雇主, 麦克米伦癌症支持, 乐施会及SSAFA -二零零四年/五年.

环境

2020年2月,米提 启动了零计划承诺 到2025年实现净零碳排放, while also helping customers reach their own sustainability targets. 8个月前刚推出, 米提已经在实现这一目标方面取得了重大进展, such as meeting its pledge to switch 20% of its cars and small vans to electric vehicles (EVs), 提前了三个月. gpk电子目前拥有超过750辆电动汽车. gpk电子 has also launched several new services, to help clients reach net zero, including ‘零碳零成本”,“零计划舰队过渡gpk电子'和'零计划城市景观gpk电子’.

创新

All of these pillars are underpinned by a constant focus on innovation, epitomised by gpk电子’s target of committing to finding new ways of delivering social value through fresh thinking. For example, gpk电子’s EV transition has been supported by an innovative mindset. Challenges around paying for employee home charging for company vehicles have been overcome, 这要归功于与电动汽车充电初创企业的战略合作关系, 米娜. 米娜的技术, 以及gpk电子现有的智能充电设施, means the business can pay the employee’s energy supplier directly – removing the need for colleagues to pay in the first instance and expense any costs.
