Energy reduction - fleet
In order to provide our customers and their communities with a safe and secure environment, we utilise a fleet of approximately 19,000 vehicles, including security patrol vehicles, prisoner escort vehicles and armoured cash transportation vehicles. It is this fleet that produces some 60% of our carbon emissions and where we focus our primary efforts to reducing our energy consumption.
Since 2009, we have been introducing a range of fuel efficiency measures into our fleet management, from real-time monitoring of driver behaviour and eco-driver training to investing in new technologies such as solar cells to power ancillary systems, stop-start systems and vehicle replacement programmes to introduce lighter and more efficient alternatives.
ENERGY REDUCTION - BUILDINGS
G4S occupies a wide range of buildings across the globe, covering more than 1 million square metres. Our facilities include corporate offices, employee accommodation, detention centres, industrial cash processing centres and vehicle depots.
Around 28.8% of our carbon emissions are generated by the energy and fuel consumption from these buildings and so we continually carry out a series of replacement programmes to implement lower energy environmental solutions wherever possible.
