Please tell us the reason why you decided to join GPSS.

I joined GPSS because I was drawn to the unique nature of a company which positions sustainability at the heart of its operations.


What is your role at GPSS?

I am working on developing ESG and sustainable finance within the company, for example through measuring the impact of our renewable power plants on the environment and society beyond a reduction in CO2 emissions.


Please tell us "the moment when your soul ignited" after joining GPSS.

I felt inspired when I attended the annual company trip (on my first day!) as it seemed to be a place where employees are truly valued as people.
