[PDF] G4S plc Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2011 - Securing Your World

Since 2010, G4S has been directly involved in the development and launch of a new International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers, which sets out principles for security operations in so‑called “complex environments.”...[I]n order to strengthen the group’s commitment to human rights and to ensure that policies and processes were in line with the very latest thinking, G4S should focus its policy and procedures on UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers...This code covers recruitment, vetting and training of staff, use of firearms, health and safety reporting and complaints handling. A steering committee launched a draft charter for the oversight mechanism for the code in January 2012 and is currently consulting with industry, governments and NGOs on its content.
