Our material issues
Our CSR priority areas
Based upon the feedback from a broad range of parties, including the executive and non-executive members of G4S’s senior management, sustainability analysts, industry bodies, customers, suppliers and NGOs – our current assessment, confirms four core CSR
- Health, safety and protection of employees and people under G4S’s care
- Human rights
- Anti-bribery and corruption
- People, culture and values
The findings reinforce the importance that G4S’s ethics, culture and values, and our employees’ personal standards and behaviour have in preventing issues and non-compliance across the core priorities and other CSR matters.
In 2020 we will conduct a new assessment of the CSR issues most relevant to G4S and its stakeholders. This assessment has been postponed from 2019 to allow for organisational changes and potentially different issues and priorities following the disposal of the majority of our conventional cash businesses.
The materiality matrix confirmed three core priority ethics and sustainability areas for the group during 2018 and 2019 - Health and safety, Human rights, Anti-bribery and corruption.
Health and Safety
The safety of our employees and those in our care is one of our corporate values and remains a key priority for the group.
Our respect for human rights is core to the sustainable success of our business and continues to be an important part of our risk assessment and mitigation process
Anti-bribery and Corruption
We will continue to develop and encourage a workplace culture in which all employees understand the company's standards of ethics and feel confident that they may raise ethical concerns.
Slavery and Human trafficking statement
Our Slavery & Human Trafficking Statement describes the actions we have taken to help prevent modern slavery.
The Group’s approach to corporate and social responsibility is now firmly embedded in the Group’s business processes, from employee recruitment and supplier management to bidding and contract delivery.
