Our objective is to help current and potential investors to have a greater understanding of both our business model and the industrial environment in which we operate. There is no set calendar that governs how we interact with our stakeholders, who include investors, lenders, politicians, regulators and business partners amongst others but we seek to communicate regularly through a variety of channels which include: • Providing shareholders and lenders with regular updates on both corporate and financial developments throughout the course of the financial year. • Regular meetings between our executive team and financial analysts, current as well as prospective investors, but with a focus around the publication of our half year and full year results. • Investor and industry presentations, online webcasts, the publishing of financial reports and analysts' coverage, to name but a few, all of which are publicly available on our corporate website: www.gvc-plc.com • Using our regular interactions to gain a greater understanding of investors' and other stakeholders' perceptions about our strategy, performance and prospects. 6. PROVIDERS OF CAPITAL We are a low-impact company, but we are not complacent and monitor our environmental performance by measuring the water and energy we consume, the amount of physical waste we produce and the amount of CO2 gas we produce through air travel. We currently monitor these impacts from our six main offices and plan to roll out monitoring across our locations this year. Key metrics show that: • A total of 3,554 air flights taken by employees producing an estimated 865 metric tons of CO2. • Our highest energy consumption resulted from our eight data centres, which consumed 8.4 million KWh of electricity in total. • On average, each full-time employee in our six main offices every month used: - 289 KWh of electricity; - 801 litres of water; and - produced 6.5kg of waste. Our approach to the environment and the community goes beyond our own business. Our suppliers' corporate responsibility agenda relating to the environment is also assessed before we enter into contractual arrangements. We believe that by aligning our interests we can make a contribution towards sustaining our environment. 5. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
