Nuestro Plan de Sostenibilidad define nuestros objetivos sostenibles y las acciones que estamos llevando a cabo para cumplirlos; 

Nuestra Política de Procurement Sostenible detalla nuestros esfuerzos para trabajar responsablemente más allá de los límites de nuestra empresa apoyando una Economía Circular. 

Ghella’s mission is to build excellence in a sustainable and innovative way.

Our commitment to delivering sustainable outcomes, through the infrastructure we contribute to create, extends beyond the boundaries of our direct operations to the supply of materials, works or services provided by third parties. To this end, where relevant and proportionate, together with our designers and our supply chain we aim to:

  • Ethical Sourcing – source products, materials and services ethically through recognised credible standards, including procuring fairly traded goods where available, and request that our ethical and anticorruption principles are subscribed by our supply chain;
  • Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency – minimise waste and material use by giving preference to materials, products and services with greatest circular economy benefits;
  • Environmental footprint – consider the carbon and water footprint of key materials and products and purchase low carbon/less water intensive alternatives, where available;
  • Biodiversity and Environmental Protection – work with suppliers that actively manage their impact on habitats and on the environment;
  • Eco-design – where possible, apply innovative eco-design principles to our projects with the aim to minimising the impacts associated to the procurement of materials and energy;
  • Community engagement – offer local businesses and social enterprises the opportunity to be part of our supply chain;
  • Labour Standards – implement a proactive approach to tackling hidden labour exploitation in our supply chain, including subcontractors working on our sites;
  • Supplier diversity – work with suppliers that actively manage diversity and inclusion in their workforce;
  • Supply Chain Engagement – adopt a collaborative approach in our relationships with suppliers and subcontractors to make them part of our sustainability journey.

We have a structured process in place to qualify and, where appropriate, monitor our suppliers and subcontractors against the sustainable procurement principles outlined above. In addition, we share with our supply chain relevant policies and guidelines developed for our own operations, with the aim of ensuring a common approach to sustainability and ethics through our value chain.

This policy is communicated to our employees as part of the mandatory induction process and it is available to all stakeholders via the company’s website and the intranet.

Creemos que una fuerza de trabajo diversa es la clave para atraer a los mejores talentos, motivarlos y permitir su desarrollo, sin importar sus características. Reconocemos estos beneficios y consideramos que aceptar las diferencias es propicio para la creatividad y la innovación. 

Nuestra Política EDI describe cómo promovemos la Igualdad, la Diversidad y la Inclusión en nuestra forma de trabajar.  

Ghella is an equal opportunity employer and strives to support an inclusive culture of collaboration where people can express their views freely within the context of our values. We believe a diverse workforce is key to attracting the best talents and to motivate and develop outstanding people, regardless of their characteristics. We recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring in understanding the needs of a diverse client base and consider embracing differences to be conducive to creativity and innovation. We strive to demonstrate our commitment to EDI principles in a number of areas:

  • Equal opportunities
    We are committed to be a fair, transparent and inclusive employer which bases all recruitment and employment decisions solely on merit, while introducing reasonable adjustments to enable all individuals to perform their duties and access the same professional opportunities. In particular, we strive to promote and improve female participation in our company and achieve gender equity.
  • Workplace behaviour
    We will not tolerate unlawful discrimination against an individual on grounds of age, disability, injury, ethnicity (including race, colour and nationality), gender or gender reassignment, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, carers’ responsibility, pregnancy and maternity.
    We promote a culture of respect for EDI principles among our staff with the aid of specific training and we take discrimination very seriously, including disciplinary measures when inappropriate behaviours are reported. Our Appropriate Workplace Behaviour policy provides more details on this and our Whistleblowing policy describes our reporting procedures.
  • Inclusive workforce and supply chain
    Where possible, we aim to invest in local employment and to increase the use of local suppliers to ensure our workforce and our supply chain are reflective of the countries where we operate.

Ghella requires that its business partners, suppliers and subcontractors align to the EDI principles expressed in this policy by subscribing to our Code of Ethics and related policies in the qualification and contractual phases.

Ofrecemos igualdad de oportunidades como empleadores y nos esforzamos por mantener un ambiente de trabajo seguro y productivo donde las personas reciban un trato digno, cortés y respetuoso. Los comportamientos inapropiados en el espacio de trabajo no se tolaeran en Ghella. 

Nuestra Política de Comportamiento Laboral explica cómo lo hacemos.  

Ghella is an equal opportunity employer that endevours to maintain a safe and productive work environment where people are treated with dignity, courtesy and respect. Inappropriate behaviours in the workplace are not acceptable and are not condoned by Ghella. They can also be unlawful under local legislation and may expose the persons concerned and Ghella to liability.

Inappropriate behaviour may occur by way of insults, comments, gossiping or spreading of rumours, social isolation or targeting, physical acts, intimidation or emotional manipulation. Inappropriate behaviours may be constituted by:

  • Bullying - a repetitive anti-social or unreasonable behaviour that offends, degrades, intimidates or humiliates a person, including continuously and deliberately excluding someone from workplace activities, withholding information essential for effective work performance or setting unreasonable deadlines or tasks unreasonably below or beyond a person’s skill level, denying access to information, supervision, consultation or resources such that it has a detriment to the worker, spreading misinformation or malicious rumours, changing work arrangements, such as rosters and leave, to deliberately inconvenience a particular worker or workers or excessive scrutiny of work.
  • Discrimination - when a person is treated less favourably than another because of a particular attribute (directly or indirectly). Our Equality, Discrimination and Inclusion policy provides more details on these aspects.
  • Harassment - behaviour which, because of its severity or persistence, is likely to create a hostile or intimidating environment and detrimentally affects a person's participation or engagement and includes, offensive, belittling, humiliating, intimidating or threatening, unwelcome and unsolicited and is of the type that is usually unreciprocated and can usually be expected to be repeated, makes the work environment unpleasant, humiliating or intimidating, and can make it difficult for work to be effectively completed.
  • Sexual Harassment - any behaviour of a sexual nature, which is unwelcome. It may involve a single incident or a series of incidents. Sexual Harassment may include physical contact (e.g. touching, patting, pinching, kissing or embracing someone, sexual assault and rape), verbal comments and non-verbal actions (e.g. leers, stares, displays of sexually explicit material, offensive body and hand movements, suggestive letters, drawings and emails, indecent exposure or stalking), including the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favours or adverse employment decisions as a result of denied sexual favours.
  • Victimisation - when a person targets, exploits or treats another person unfairly including taking action, bullying or intimidating a person because they have made a complaint, denying promotion opportunities without reasonable consideration of their objective merits or reasonable requests for flexible work arrangements being denied due to a personal dislike of the person making the request.

Ghella encourages employees to try to initially resolve issues directly and informally through a process of discussion and conciliation. However, it is crucial that employees do not ignore inappropriate behaviours they may experience, witness or become aware of as this may give the impression that these behaviours are acceptable. Managers are tasked to provide support for informal grievances and complaints or trigger formal investigations/escalation as appropriate.

Ghella provides access to confidential reporting channels that may be used for cases of inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. Our Whistleblowing policy provides more details on this.

Ghella requires that its business partners, suppliers and subcontractors align to the appropriate workplace behaviour principles expressed in this policy.

This policy is communicated to our employees as part of the mandatory induction process and it is available to all stakeholders via the company’s website and the intranet.

It is reviewed annually during management system reviews to ensure it is consistent with the company's mission and vision.
