The Board is committed to adopting best practice, where possible and appropriate, in its reporting of ESG issues. ESG issues fall under the remit of the Audit and Risk Committee of the Board but the board may introduce a separate Sustainability Committee over time. The Directors recognise that ESG reporting will be developed over time but have already begun the collection of data to enable the process to commence and to report data along the SASB framework. The board expects to provide ESG disclosures in the annual report and audited accounts of CGL for the year ended 31 December 2020.
The Board is ultimately responsible for overseeing the Group’s efforts on all ESG efforts and is reviewing risks and opportunities on a quarterly basis. Suzanne Packer, COO, is the ESG champion within the Group, in charge of the Board oversight as well as driving change throughout the organisation. Suzanne will liaise with internal project managers and specialists in all areas of the business to improve the material ESG issues as identified by the Group. The board, together with senior management and in collaboration with specialists at all levels of the Group will develop medium- and long-term ESG goals for the Group, such as goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase employee engagement and diversity. The Group will report on its progress and goals through its annual reports as well as ad hoc press releases and on investor roadshows.
