BRG and the ESG - Environmental, Social and Governance

The 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs)

We, at BRG are joining many organisations across the world in developing a sustainability framework that meets the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG17) devised by the United Nations in a bracing, global vision, to make the world a better place by 2030. Our commitment to these goals is complete and unwavering.

Through our own efforts we will endeavour to raise awareness and create a genuine and lasting difference; and in doing so, seek to inspire others to recognise their part in driving collective actionable change.

We are also shifting our focus to a new sustainable range of experiences across our brands, delivered to us by our amazing supply community. If you’d like to learn more about how you can get involved, contact your local Market Manager or email supplypartners@thebigredgroup.com.au

Our ESG commitment to 2030

Environmental
To manage the impacts of our operations on the environment. Lead and grow the experience economy and help shift the tide of consumption of ‘stuff’. Create and curate responsible, aspirational offerings that allow people to kick their own ‘good life goals’ to positively impact them and the world around them. 
Social
Build and add value to the social fabric and communities around us. Create stronger sustainable supply  partnerships for mutual growth. Challenge social issues, leading the industry at large to be role models and share progress. 
Governance
Operate sustainable corporate practices with integrity. Ask our communities to also do good and do great. Earn our reputation, walking our talk internally and externally. Deepen the value of our business and importance to our employees, suppliers, communities and government. 

Doing good and going great

In considering our ESG initiative for the next decade we have reflected on:

  • Our corporate integrity
  • What people will aspire to experience
  • The needs of our communities in understanding how to grow the experience economy
  • The environmental impact of our operations; and
  • Our role in solving the social issues that are relevant to us

Why now?

In a new normal, and as a leader of an industry returning from serial environmental, health and economic crises, we feel this is an agenda that can be neither deferred nor delegated.  We take responsibility of our actions and we strive to be agents of change. It is vital that we act now.

By developing an ESG framework, we aim to transform the landscape of the Australian and New Zealand experiential category by championing inclusion, offering diversity in our operations, and embracing our social and environmental responsibilities for the betterment of all communities involved.

Through our own efforts we will endeavour to raise awareness and create a genuine and lasting difference; and in doing so, seek to inspire others to recognise their part in driving collective actionable change. Our ESG framework will result in clarification, reinforcement and positive change for us, the businesses that work with us, and the people who work in our team.
