G S is the world’s leading global integrated security company, with operations across six continents and more than 623,000 employees.
 
As one of the world’s largest employers, operating in security and related roles across the globe, G4S plays an important role in society by helping people to operate in a safe and secure environment where they can thrive and prosper.  Its size and scale means that it touches the lives of millions of people across the world and its goal is to ensure that it makes a positive impact on the communities in which it works.
   
" We recognise that having a sustainable, ethical business is key to the future success of G4S.  We believe that our CSR goals are best achieved when they are integrated within our business practices and not operated as a stand-alone programme, which is why our CSR practices are developed in conjunction with our operational strategies to ensure that they achieve the desired impacts, but also contribute positively to business performance."
 
Ashley Almanza, Group Chief Executive Officer
 
Reflecting the focus and importance it places on ethics and sustainability, this year G4S has implemented an integrated CSR reporting framework, led by its Annual Report  and supported by its CSR Report  and the relevant CSR sections of its website.  
 
2014 CSR Report highlights:

  • It outlines how G4S’ corporate values are at the heart of its day-today business activity and are underpinned by its CSR strategies
  • It looks at the company’s stakeholder engagement and its regular materiality reviews which have identified three key areas within G4S’ broad-ranging CSR programme as strategic priorities:
    • Business ethics and anti-bribery and corruption
    • Health and safety
    • Human rights
  • It reports on G4S’ review of its whistleblowing policy and the steps it has taken to implement a new global hotline and case management system, and provides an overview on the implementation of its new governance, risk and compliance systems and processes, which includes human rights, business ethics and labour rights reviews
  • G4S provides an update on its continued focus on Safety First, including the extension of its Driving Force Rules campaign to all regions, the setting of health and safety related performance objectives for all senior business leaders, and the development of a new health and safety management framework
  • It further highlights the progress it has made since the launch of its human rights policy in 2013 to implement a human rights framework based upon the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and embed its standards and awareness into business policies and processes
