Our approach

Sustainability at GE is about enabling positive changes in the world around us. GE businesses depend on the infrastructure, skills and institutions of stable, prosperous societies and healthy environments. To succeed as a global business, we need to help build these societies where we operate.

Through our charitable and volunteer efforts as well as the way we do business, we bring our passion for problem solving to address challenges in the communities where we live and work. In the UK and Ireland, this includes:

  • Helping educate children so they can become innovators and engineers
  • Delivering volunteer projects that improve people's day to day lives
  • Recruiting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce

I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent it.
