G4S has been included as a constituent member of the FTSE4Good Index Series in 2019 for the third year running, following an independent assessment of the group's sustainable business practices and commitment to social responsibility.

"We take a holistic approach to social responsibility and are mindful of our societal impact.  Our continuing commitment to conducting our business in a way that is ethically responsible, safe and consistent with the company's values and standards is core to the sustainable success of G4S.

 

"G4S' employees deliver services around the world which contribute to the creation of a safer society in which millions of people live and work.  We are proud of the role they play in society and of the positive contribution which G4S makes to advance standards and help to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular, the SDG 8 (Decent Work & Economic Growth) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions)."
