carbon disclosure project

Since 2009, G4S has reported on the progress of its environmental management through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). In the latest CDP report, G4S achieved a CDP performance score of (C), in line with the programme's average. Reporting to the CDP helps to demonstrate a company's awareness of their greenhouse gas emissions, allowing for reduction targets to be put in place, as well as addressing the risks and opportunities that are associated with climate change.


G4S became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in 2011. The world's largest CSR initiative, the Global Compact sets out 10 universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption to which businesses must align their strategies and operations, and calls upon companies to take actions that advance the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

G4S is proud to reaffirm its commitment to these principles, which continue to be reflected in our core values. G4S is a signatory of the Business for Peace initiative and remains active within the UK Network of the UN Global Compact - continuing to participate as a member of the governing Advisory Group.

Within our collected sustainability reporting framework, we have described the actions we have undertaken to build upon and further integrate the Global Compact and its principles into our culture and values, business strategy and daily operations during 2017.
