You are our new Head of Sustainability – what is your role?
I am responsible for our group-wide strategic sustainability work and am in contact with companies in the group, investors and other stakeholders to make sure we are meeting their expectations and thoughts in the sustainability area. Together with the team at the parent company and all the companies in the group, we work to create results for our stakeholders. We are deepening our collaboration on strategic sustainability with all Operative CEOs and management teams to facilitate collaboration, support each other and share learnings across the group.
What’s next on our sustainability journey?
We have great opportunities to turn the challenges in our industry into opportunities and by doing so take our responsibility as a company. The gaming and entertainment industry is a growing global industry. It has a strong potential to be a force for good and impact the world in the right direction. Our products are used and enjoyed by people from all over the world, and we have employees in over 40 countries.
Why is our sustainability work important?
Our sustainability work is part of our business development, based on our values and is a way to manage risk and create opportunities. Gearbox Academy and Borderlands Science (feature on page 55 and 61) are two of many strong examples of how our products create value for many stakeholders from young students to scientists. By recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce, we can create even better products while at the same time allowing everyone to reach their full potential. Collaborations and partnerships, within the group, in the industry, with authorities and NGOs supports our connection and contribution to society. I am proud of our collaboration with Safe in Our World, which has further developed this year and enabled people across the gaming industry to get easy access to mental health tools.
