GFG Alliance wins the Franco-British Business Award for Sustainability
GFG Alliance is delighted to announce it has been awarded The French Chamber of Great Britain’s Franco-British Business Award for Sustainability. GFG was declared winner of the Sustainability Award yesterday evening at the event, hosted at the May Fair Hotel, London.
The twentieth edition of the Awards is held under the high patronage of the French Ambassador to the UK and the British Ambassador to France. The awards celebrate the excellence of French and British companies and their recent successes, in three categories: CSR, Start-up & SME, and Sustainability.
GFG’s GREENSTEEL AND GREENALUMINIUM visions were central to the successful award win. A panel of high-level business representatives comprised the jury, including board members of the French Chamber, past winners and sponsors of the event.
The panel of judges were impressed by GFG’s rationale for investing in the reindustrialisation of Britain and France and its commitment to developing integrated value chains, alongside our recently announced aim for our global steel business to be carbon neutral by 2030. Sustainability is at the core of GFG’s business model and values, in a way that is so fundamental it sets it apart from their competitors.
Speaking of the award GFG Alliance executive chairman Sanjeev Gupta said:
“We’re delighted to have received this award which marks a great step in our French journey. We have only been present in the French market for just over a year and a half and in that time have built an integrated value chain with sustainability at its core. For us sustainability means not only environmental responsibility but economic and social durability as well.
“Our plans to reindustrialise the UK and France depend on these three elements being in place – I’m very pleased to see that this resonated with the jury and very proud for our efforts to have been recognised in this way by our newly-found peers in the Franco-British community.”
