GPL are a family and we recognise we have an important role to play in the local residential and business community. We recruit from within our existing family and believe in providing young people with an opportunity to start and develop their career.
We recognise that our activities have an impact on the environment and as such are committed to developing our approach to minimising this impact. We have a group of GPL Eco Warriers who are charged with running initiatives throughout the business to raise awareness and reduce our carbon footprint.
We are in the process of implementing a ride to work scheme and are working towards our Environmental Management standard ISO14001.
Each year GPL supports a different charity based on submissions from our team. We understand that choice of charity is very personal, and so we encourage our team to put forward something that they believe in.
Our next charity event is the Windsor Colour Run. 23 of the GPL team are busy training for the 5k run with obstacles that will take place in May and we will be raising money for our chosen charity Give A Child A Chance, in partnership with the Berkshire Community Foundation.
Give a Child a Chance raises money to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children in Berkshire. They support local children in need by funding charities and community groups in Berkshire who work with children, particularly those with physical or learning disabilities, psychological or behavioural issues, and those living in care and areas of deprivation. Money raised goes directly to where it’s needed most – making a real difference to the lives of young people living on our doorstep.

We also run a number of fundraising activities throughout the year in support of National causes such as Red Nose Day and Children in Need.
