Since 2009, G4S has reported on the progress of reducing it's impact on the environment through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). In the http:latest 2016 CDP report, "Tracking Progress on Corporate Climate Action", G4S achieved a CDP rating of "B" against a CDP Industrials Sector average of "C".

The CDP scores companies based on their climate change disclosure; high scores indicate good internal data management and an understanding of climate change-related issues affecting the company. Reporting to the CDP shows that we as a company are aware of our greenhouse gas emissions, that we take action to measure, report and take responsibility for our environmental impact. This allows 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 Social 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 business strategy, culture, values and daily operations during 2016.
