our carbon Emissions
We have partnered with Corporate Citizenship (a global consulting firm, specialising in responsible and sustainable business) to conduct an in-depth review our approach and to develop a full road map and science based targets to achieve our net-zero ambitions.
We expect to publish details and commence implementation of our new climate action strategy in autumn/winter 2021.
We have made considerable progress to date in reducing our carbon intensity by 15.9% since 2019.
We have taken steps to reduce the energy footprint of our facilities across the UK and to reduce business travel through new technology. From 2020 we have sourced all electricity from certified renewable sources.
Around 75% of our scope 1 and 2 emissions are generated by our vehicle fleet.
For over a decade, G4S have installed operational vehicles with telematics systems that significantly improve fuel consumption and reduce emissions and, where possible, we have introduced more efficient vehicle engine options into our fleet.
Since 2009 we have incorporated photovoltaic modules into the roof of cash delivery vehicles to power ancillary electrical energy usage and from 2021, all new cash delivery vehicles will be either hybrid or electric powered. We have committed to all cars being zero emission by 2030, with operational vehicles less than 3.5t being zero emission by 2035 and all remaining vehicles zero emission by 2040.

We use Green House Gas protocol methodology to undertake a measurement of our Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions – vehicle fleet, fuel, refrigerants, and electricity usage for G4S occupied businesses over which we have operational control on an annual basis. In addition we also measure Scope 3 emissions from employee business air travel.
