At Infinigate, it is our policy to conduct all our business activities in an honest and ethical manner, which contributes to sustainable development.
We build trust by demonstrating integrity, transparency and fair treatment in everything we do, including ensuring equity in our workplace and complying with current legislation.
Our People are our Strength
We are committed to a culture of diversity & inclusion, positivity, teamwork, support and personal development, based on mutual respect.
Ownership and Responsibility
We conduct ourselves with honesty, transparency and integrity, being accountable for our actions.
Environmental and Social Commitment
Protecting the planet is a key concern for Infinigate as a business. We behave ethically, supporting the social community in which we live, promoting a safe and healthy environment for all.
Excellence in Execution
We are passionate about what we do.
We work proactively and collaboratively, with focus on innovation and customer satisfaction.
Our sustainability framework is built around the ten principles of the UN Global compact; by incorporating these principles into our processes, we ensure we uphold our responsibility to people and the planet.
Our commitment to sustainability paves the way for the Infinigate Group to do the right thing and have a positive impact on the environment, to build a better future for all. As an example, we are implementing policies to decarbonise our company.
The Infinigate Group recognises that our success and reputation are closely tied to the wellbeing, effectiveness, conduct and skill base of our employees.
We are committed to the equal treatment of all employees and to providing a safe working environment, free from bullying and harassment, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
One third of our top management team at Group level is female, including crucial roles such as Chief Financial Officer, with Kristiina Leppänen, and Chief People Officer, with Caroline Hutchins. Additionally, Alexandra Reich is the Chairwoman for our Board of Directors.
We also live up to our global social responsibility by actively supporting several charitable organisations.
As an example, we support several children’s charities through our Charity Gala and our Innovation Summits in Germany: https://www.dunkelziffer.de/, https://sternenbruecke.de/, https://chancezumleben-als.de/, https://www.rett.de/
In the UK and Ireland, we contribute towards charities supporting autistic children, families affected by cancer and promoting mental health services for our society: https://www.solentmind.org.uk/, https://cancerfundforchildren.com/ and https://dogsforautism.org.uk/.
Every day we do something towards cleaner water in Asia and Africa: https://www.vivaconagua.org/
The Infinigate Group’s board, together with shareholders, set and govern our goals and are committed to advancing our policies. We are investing in better ESG policies and target-based reporting to measure our progress towards our goals.
We invest in our employees and empower them with the skills they need to encourage their growth and development. We value training as an integral component of our workforce’s development strategy and strive to ensure that our course offerings expand our employees’ leadership, technical and personal skills.
We have updated our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy to include a yearly review to encourage transparent reporting.
Decarbonising our company
We continuously review and update company policies, including a green energy policy for all buildings to have renewable energy. We update our company car policy to stipulate that all business miles travelled must be offset to net 0. We are investing in technology to create accurate reporting and to set measurable targets, with the intent to reach Net zero by 2035.
To mark the acquisition of Nuvias, Vuzion and Starlink in autumn 2022, we planted a tree for each of our employees in the South American rainforest. Here you can find more and current information about our Infinigate Forest, e.g. the total amount of carbon dioxide sequestered.
We invest in technology to assist our ESG programme in alignment with the UN sustainable goals, (scope 1,2 and 3 to include GHG accounting, TCFD and future ESRS reporting). The data analysis enabled by the technology investment lets us make better decisions and maximise our impact.
We strive to create stronger relationships with our supply chain, supported by a strategy to meet our scope 3 objectives, including a review of logistics processes, better delivery options for customers.

Ethical behaviour involves more than just observing the law. Our Code of Ethics and Conduct (the “Code”) sets out the fundamental principles, standards and conduct that enable us to successfully pursue our mission, accomplish our goals and promote our values.

We believe that responsibility, trust and accountability go hand in hand to ensure the success of our business. We strive to incorporate ED&I factors into every part of our business to ensure the success of our teams and individual employees.
