Environmental, Sustainability and Diversity Charter

Global Traffic Network (UK) Commercial Limited (“GTN”) has always provided clear intention through its corporate governance, policies and procedures to evidence its endeavours to operate transparently and in good conscience.  Sustainability and inclusivity being core values that underpin the successful wellbeing of the business.

Diversity and inclusivity are evident in our recruitment and employee policies and procedures.  The company excels in engaging individuals capable of independent thought who through co-operation and collaboration function as effective teams delivering outstanding results.  GTN’s equal opportunities policy is evidenced by the diverse talent that contributes to the success of the business.

All GTN employees have benefited from diversity training and this is reviewed regularly.  The company’s Corporate Diversity Policy, Whistleblowing Policy and Code of Conduct are all readily available on the GTN website.

All our people and their dependants have access to an Employee Assistance Programme as we are acutely aware of the impact balancing a healthy homelife with a successful work ethic can have; our HR manager holds the TQUK Level 2 Certificate in Mental Health Awareness.

How GTN conducts its Business

GTN operates one central London office space, which is effectively supported by sustainable public transport links; employees are encouraged to walk or cycle where possible both to and from work, but also when attending face to face meetings in the City.  All employees have access to shower facilities and we can provide suitable storage for cycles.

Having previously established flexibility in working practices, we were able to implement home / remote working seamlessly in March 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Unnecessary travel is discouraged with many meetings and presentations undertaken via teams / zoom.  Selecting locations that are easy to reach for all those concerned, and where possible, include outdoor exercise whilst still providing conducive environments to do business.

With virtual servers and cloud-based technology, everyone can access everything they require to complete their work no matter where they are at any given time; everyone is encouraged not to print unnecessarily; purchasing is based on need and not want and we recycle where possible.

Everyone is encouraged to adopt healthy eating and fitness through inclusion and friendly competition; team cohesion through challenges and quizzes provides the company with opportunities to inform and engage.
