G4S joins the UN Global Compact for responsible business
G4S has signed up to the United Nations Global Compact, an international standard which promotes socially responsible business behaviour in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
“The principles set out in the Compact are already pretty well embedded in our existing policies, so we thought the time was right to make a public commitment to this excellent initiative,” said G4S plc CEO Nick Buckles. “Doing so will give us extra impetus to ensure respect for human rights, the environment and ethical behaviour are part of everything we do worldwide.”
As part of our commitment to the Global Compact, G4S undertakes to make an annual Communication on Progress in the areas set out in the Compact. This obligation will be covered by our Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which we have published since 2009.
