GGF introduces ‘Evolve – a framework for better business’

  • 1 Oct 2021

At its annual Members’ Day, the GGF launched a Member-wide consultation on ‘Evolve – a framework for better business’.

Evolve is a framework of values and principles to help GGF Members become even better businesses. Presenting was James MacPherson, GGF Health, Safety and Environment Manager.

The long term aim is to build a modern industry of socially responsible, sustainable, and people centred companies using modern, organisational culture and risk and resilience solutions. 

GGF

It’s an evidence-based framework that has inspiration from organisational science, high hazard industries and much more. It will guide members forward with values of culture, resilience, and human performance.

The Evolve framework has the approval of the GGF Health and Safety and Environment Committees. However, to ensure as many Members as possible have the opportunity to feedback and contribute to the framework in the final months of 2021.

There is a full consultation process in place, that will include:

 – A full consultation document available for October 2021 with all the evidence and information behind the structure and values.
 – October, November and December webinars on each value with Q&A.
 – Presentations and Q&A at all GGF Regional Meetings for the rest of 2021 and into 2022.

‘Need to evolve’

On the launch, James MacPherson, comments: “The concept of GGF Evolve is something that I have been working towards since joining the GGF.

“Until the last few months, I never quite knew what it would end up looking like or being called, but I knew that when it comes to managing our operational risks and cultures that we – companies, individuals and the industry – need to evolve.

“Being the industry’s main trade organisation, the GGF represents the whole supply chain and therefore is in a unique position to take modern evidence-based approaches to risk management and resilience.

“We are excited to guide our members into a modern, evidence-based approach to managing their risks and cultures. I am looking forward to delivering the free webinars every month, not only to GGF members but to all those in the industry, who want to evolve.”

The formal launch of GGF Evolve will be January 2022. All GGF Members can pledge to ‘Evolve into a Better Business’.
