Business ethics and anti-bribery and corruption

Being trusted and reliable, and acting with integrity and respect are key to our values – they are an integral part of G4S and form the essential foundation on which we carry out our business.

We know that there is more to being a responsible and ethical business – as an employer, customer and supplier – than legal compliance. Our ethical approach is an essential means of doing business and provides a clear market differentiator for G4S, particularly in many developing countries. Anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) policies and procedures form a key element of the Ethics Codes for both Allied Universal in North America and G4S internationally. Both are supported by specific training and awareness programs globally.

In 2021, the training program on ABC was refreshed across G4S. Those most impacted by the training, such as new employees, all managers and staff with responsibility for making financial decisions and for controlling assets have been prioritized to undertake the new ABC training. The intent is to refresh this training annually.

Progress in 2021 and 2022 to date

• ABC training programs have been refreshed, translated into 17 languages and communicated to c.6,300 target employees in G4S

Priorities in 2022

• Review relevant policies and procedures from across the organization to ensure a harmonized ongoing approach to ABC, incorporating experience from both Allied Universal and G4S.

• Align the North America and international ABC programs where appropriate.

• Initiate annual refresher training on ABC for all target employees in G4S.

• Publish a global ABC policy for the organization.

We will continue to develop and encourage a workplace culture in which all employees will feel confident that they may raise any ethical concerns.

G4S Ethics Code

The Ethics Code explains what we mean by doing business in the right way for all the people whose lives we touch - our customers, our employees and the communities in which we live and work. How we do things is as important as what we do and there is always a right way to achieve a successful outcome.
