Business ethics and anti-bribery and corruption
We know that being a responsible and ethical business partner, employer, customer and supplier is not just a reaction to the challenges of legal compliance, but an important means of doing business and provides a clear market differentiator for G4S, particularly in many developing regions.
We have recently refreshed our training programme on Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC). To ensure the training is effective and reaches those who need it, in addition to all new employees, all managers and staff with responsibility for making any financial decisions and for controlling assets have been prioritised to undertake the new ABC training and to repeat it annually.
In 2020 we undertook a full review of our Business Ethics Policy which included an external view of current best practice. As a result of that process, we have developed a new Ethics Code which sets out in detail how the G4S values and standards should be applied in order to always do business in the right way. The Code was launched early in 2021. It is designed to be inclusive and accessible to all and relevant at every stage of the employee lifecycle.

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.
