Our sustainability framework is based on the three pillars of sustainability, social, economic and environmental. The framework outlines the key sustainability focus areas for ANGE, which were identified during roundtable discussions between the Sustainability Council and interviews with key internal stakeholders. Based on the framework, we have created a sustainability roadmap with strategic objectives, initiatives, KPIs and targets. The roadmap provides a high level overview of planned activities and the strategic direction of the Group. The roadmap is broken down into three key areas; responsible consumption, working as a family and unlocking potential. Each area has set strategic objectives which have been assigned to a Sustainability Council leader. The leaders are responsible for implementing and achieving these objectives and will be measured against approved KPIs and targets.

Rooted in history, our sustainability logo is a representation of the Ghaf tree, the national tree of the UAE. The Ghaf tree is a symbol of perseverance and giving, offering much shelter, food and fuel - and demanding very little water in return. Our logo represents people joined together with open arms in the act of giving and it underpins our sustainability approach to preserve our heritage and give back to the community, the economy and the environment.
