Global Blue is committed to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and has chosen four objectives to focus its initiatives on, as part of its commitment to a sustainable future.
These goals include:
which focuses on innovation and technology to streamline processes
which involves reducing paper usage, adopting waste and e-waste management procedures, and ensuring vendor selection based on sustainability goals
which includes reducing the environmental impact of business transportation and energy consumption at the workplace
which involves being an equal opportunity employer, complying with fair labour practices, and creating sustainable new jobs through innovation and diversification
Global Blue is focused on implementing a strong Corporate Social Responsibility program. This includes caring for our employees, being trustworthy in terms of business ethics, IT, and data security, and reducing our environmental impact. We are already working on initiatives such as promoting social dialogue, respecting labour rights, and investing in sustainable technologies. We also plan to launch a program to assess and address our environmental impact this year. Global Blue is committed to continuing to grow and expand our CSR efforts as we strive to be a leader in our industry.
In 2021, a working group of volunteer employees designed the Global Blue Environment Strategy as part of the Global Blue Sustainability Pact, which commits the company to enacting long-term sustainable change within the workplace and through merchant and traveller ecosystems.
To measure and report on our CSR performance, we have established a number of metrics and targets, and conduct yearly reporting and regular stakeholder engagement.
