At its annual Members’ Day, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) launched a Member-wide consultation on “Evolve – a framework for better business”.
Presented by James MacPherson, GGF Health, Safety and Environment Manager, Evolve is a framework of values and principles to help GGF Members become even better businesses. The long term aim is to build a modern industry of socially responsible, sustainable, and people centered companies using modern, organisational culture and risk and resilience solutions.
It’s an evidence-based framework that has inspiration from organizational science, high hazard industries and much more, to guide members forward with values of culture, resilience, and human performance.
The Evolve framework has been approved by the GGF Health and Safety and Environment Committees, however to ensure that 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.
On the launch James MacPherson commented, “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 organization, 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.”
GGF Evolve will be formally launched from January 2022 for all GGF Members to pledge to “Evolve into a Better Business”.
