We recognise the importance of the climate crisis and the role businesses must play. Aligned to our carbon reduction roadmap, our “No Planet B” initiative engages our staff members on our journey to reduce our environmental impact and to facilitate their contribution towards meeting our environmental objectives.

A few of the ways, our No Planet B ambassadors have helped CGI to reduce our environmental impact here in the UK include:

  • Eliminating the use of single use plastics from our kitchen office environments

  • Implementing cycling ambassadors in all UK offices to promote our cycling initiatives

  • Putting staff member engagement at the top of the agenda, organising and promoting environmental competitions, webinars, articles and events.

  • Encouraging recycling, reusing and reducing through waste management initiatives

  • Implementing Office Environmental Ambassadors

Alongside this, over the last two years, as part of our No Planet B initiative, CGI has planted 10,000 trees across the UK. 5,500 were planted in the Scottish Borders as part of a reforesting initiative and the remaining 4,500 were planted via community groups such as schools, scout groups and refuges across the UK.
