Corporate Responsibility
Responsibility

By Leaders for Climate Action

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are at the heart of our business and our initiatives are a continuously evolving process that we are incredibly passionate about. Applying these principles will allow better long-term financial returns for companies and investors, and a closer alignment with the values of our team and society. We believe that tech contributes to the greater good and provides solutions to solve many of the world’s problems and injustices.

GP BULLHOUND GIVES BACK TO LOCAL AND GLOBAL COMMUNITIES
Future Stars Charity Programme

The 2022 class of our Future Stars programme participated in a Charity Challenge, where they worked in teams to research, champion and present a charity idea to the GP Bullhound Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee. The students were requested to propose charities and organisations that they would like to contribute towards. This exercise enabled us to align the Future Stars scheme with our firmwide desire to give back, drive change for a better world, and integrate social responsibility into every aspect of our deeds. To date, we have directed donations to two Future Stars charity choices - Dharma Bharathi Mission, donating laptops to impoverished schools in India, and Opportunity International’s Micro Banking program, which designs, delivers, and scales innovative financial solutions to help impoverished communities build sustainable livelihoods (94% of those reached in the Micro Banking Program are female).

We are committed to building a better and more sustainable future
