G4S has been independently assessed and included as a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series for the second year running. This inclusion recognises G4S’ strong commitment to social responsibility and sustainable business practices across the group.
The FTSE4Good Index Series is a leading socially responsible investment (SRI) indicator developed by FTSE Russell, part of the London Stock Exchange Group. It’s designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance practices.
G4S’ head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Government affairs, Nigel Lockwood, said: “Given that we’re a global leader in security and related services, Corporate Social Responsibility is very important to G4S and it forms a key part of our strategy. G4S plays an important role in everyday society. We’re trusted to care for some of the world’s most valuable assets and to ensure the safety, protection and welfare of people around the world, often in complex and demanding operating environments.”
Lockwood added: “Conducting our business in a way which is ethically responsible, safe and consistent with the company’s values and standards is an essential element of our operational model.”
Operating in around 90 countries, the 570,000 G4S employees deliver services that create a safe and better environment in which millions of people live and work. Through its services and organisation, G4S delivers a broad range of significant and far-reaching social, economic and environmental benefits to the communities in which it works, many of which are helping to realise the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
