SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call upon businesses to advance sustainable development through the investments they make, solutions they develop and the practices they adopt. We have identified a range of social and economic impacts where G4S supports the realisation of the Goals and makes a positive difference to society and communities around the world. Within these, we have a specific focus on Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) which closely align with our strategy, CSR priority areas and our operational expertise. Our priority areas are Health and Safety, Human Rights and Anti-bribery and Corruption, underpinned by People, Culture and Values.
In our integrated report, we have mapped case studies against the SDGs to highlight where G4S is helping to advance the SDGs through our programmes and operations. Read more on how G4S supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals here.

One of our core values, Integrity, highlights the importance of always doing the right thing, and our Speak Out Global Hotline, encourages our people to do just that – to blow the whistle and report concerns about serious wrongdoing, such as breaches of laws, regulations or company policy.
