Energy reduction and decarbonisation
Across the globe, we operates a vehicle fleet comprising a wide range of types and sizes, from light patrol cars to heavy cash transportation vehicles. Our fleet of over 19,000 vehicles generates around 70% of our core Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions. Accordingly, we have focused our primary efforts reducing fuel consumption and decreasing the carbon emissions of our fleet.
For over a decade, G4S has been installing operational vehicles with telematics systems that significantly improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, investing in driver skills training and behaviour monitoring systems, and, where possible, introducing more efficient engine options into our fleet.
We occupy a wide-ranging collection of buildings across the globe, covering almost 10 million square feet. Our facilities include corporate offices, technology centres, cash processing facilities, employee accommodation and vehicle depots. Around 30% of our Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions are generated by the energy and fuel usage of these buildings and so we are continuing to carry out equipment replacement programs and explore opportunities for sourcing renewable energy.
• Since mid-2020, all UK businesses, representing almost 13% of our global energy consumption, now procure all electricity from certified renewable sources.
• In January 2021, G4S Turkey relocated its headquarters to a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold-certified office campus.
