Reporting frameworks

G4S reports against a number of widely recognised CSR reporting frameworks.

A full index of CSR-related issues which can be found in our own CSR reporting framework is also available.

This report and our collective sustainability reporting framework were published in April 2016. Together, they represent the CSR activity of G4S plc and its subsidiaries, associated undertakings and joint ventures for the year ended 31 December 2015 and follow our 2014 CSR Report published in April 2015. The audited Integrated Report and Accounts of G4S plc for the year ended 31 December 2015 contains further information about the company and should be seen as the definitive source for investment decisions. No significant changes from previous reporting periods have been made, including the boundaries and measurement methods, unless stated. 

Reporting frameworks

Carbon Disclosure Project

Since 2009, G4S has reported on the progress of its Climate Action Programme through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). 

In the latest CDP report, Global Climate Change – At The Tipping Point, G4S achieved a CDP score of 94(B), an improvement of 6% from our score of 89(B) in 2014. 

The CDP scores companies based on their climate change disclosure; high scores indicate good internal data management and an understanding of climate change-related issues affecting the company. 

Reporting to the CDP shows that companies are aware of their greenhouse gas emissions, allowing for reduction targets to be put in place, as well as addressing the risks and opportunities that are associated with climate change. 

Global Reporting Initiative

Our sustainability reporting framework for 2015 contains a number of Standard Disclosures from the Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. A list of Standard Disclosures and their location within our sustainability reporting framework.

UN Global Compact

G4S plc became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in 2011. The world’s foremost CSR initiative, the Global Compact sets out 10 universal principles to which businesses must adhere across the areas of anti-corruption, labour relations, human rights and the environment. G4S is proud to reaffirm its commitment to these principles, which continue to be reflected in our family of CSR policies and our core values. G4S is a signatory of the Business for Peace initiative and remains active within the UK Network of the UN Global Compact – continuing to participate as a member of the governing Advisory Group. 

Within our collected sustainability reporting framework we have described the actions we have undertaken to build upon and further integrate the Global Compact and its principles into our business strategy, culture, values and daily operations during 2015.
