Protecting the environment
We recognize that our business activities have direct and indirect impacts on the natural environment, and we remain committed to managing and minimizing those impacts in a responsible manner
Climate change presents a risk to people and infrastructure across the globe. As an organization that specializes in managing risk, we recognize that the threat of climate change is an important and growing concern for our group, our customers and communities.
Being an energy efficient business is part of being an economically sustainable business. By using our resources efficiently we can help to reduce our own costs of operation and in markets where environmental sustainability is a key concern, it can provide competitive differentiation.
At G4S, we endeavour to be leaders in our industry in measuring, reporting and reducing the intensity of our greenhouse gas emissions. We have set ourselves a challenging target for carbon reduction and implementing a number of programs that will drive us towards our goal.
We are proud of the progress we have made since 2008 in measuring our carbon emissions, and the steps we are taking to improve our energy efficiency and reduce our carbon emissions and waste. However, we recognize that we are still at the beginning of our Climate Action journey and there is much more that we can do to achieve our carbon intensity targets.
