Our ESG Commitments
ESG is at heart of ESGgen
By using ESG to unlock value in our employees' lives and in our business, we are committed to being a next generation employer. Our commitments will evolve (like ESG itself) and are in line with current best practice benchmarks (August 2021).
ESGgen will have net zero C02 emissions by 2030.
We will reduce the business’s per capita water consumption by 25% by 2030.
Stamping out inequality:
Executives and Employees remuneration is visible to all and determined solely on skill and experience not based on gender, belief, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
Reducing the pay gap:
Executives (or the highest paid employee) agree to cap remuneration at 7x the company mean.
Diverse at its core:
The business commits to maintaining a diverse workforce, Board of Directors and Board of Advisors.
Flexible work = equal opportunity:
Support a fully flexible workforce to work from the office or at home - anywhere in the world. So that we can hire the best talent regardless of geography.
Fair living wage is not enough:
Entry level remuneration will start at 2x the London living wage.
4-day work week:
ESGgen will operate on a 4-day work week (Monday-Thursday) to ensure its people can have a better work-life balance.
Time-off to rejuvenate:
Each employee will get 25 holiday days plus statutory holidays.
ESGgen is the sum of its people:
That’s why every employee will receive a share of the company via an Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) option scheme.
No free work:
All interns will be paid and we do not use Zero Hours Contracts.
Oversight of the Board is critical:
Two independent Directors are required for any Board meeting to be valid.
Advisory Board to meet twice a year to provide external perspective and guidance.
