Our sustainability strategy aims to achieve this through environmental and social initiatives. We take our responsibilities seriously and display this through our community partnerships, our people programs and corporate governance.
Sustainability has always been incredibly important to us at GYG. Our takeaway bags are recyclable. The packaging for our bowls, nachos, enchiladas and condiments is compostable and made from renewable sugar cane pulp, and our cutlery is compostable. We source our packaging from BioPak and work closely with them to continue to develop new sustainable packaging options.
GYG has partnered with the Misión México Foundation for over 18 years. Mision Mexico Foundation was founded by an Australian couple, Pam & Alan Skuse in Tapachula, Mexico. The refuge changes the lives of young children who are orphaned or abandoned with little to no hope for their future. To date the Mision Mexico Foundation has helped hundreds of children grow into incredible young people, giving them a full education, a loving family, and have opened doors that the children could never have dreamt of. GYG continues to support the Misión México Foundation to give back to a country who has given GYG so much.
GYG employees participate in a range of industry initiatives, including as a member of the National Retail Association’s Health & Nutrition, Sustainability and ESG Committees.
