Corporate social responsibility

G4S plays an important role in society. We make a difference by helping people to operate in a safe and secure environment where they can thrive and prosper. 
CSR

We recognise that the sustainable growth of our business depends on our unwavering commitment to good corporate governance, the development and engagement of our people, proactively identifying and mitigating risks, and the sound partnerships that we build with our customers and our local communities.

Corporate social responsibility is therefore an integral part of our everyday work. We take our responsibility to “secure your world” very seriously.

Our approach to CSR is wide-ranging and focuses on initiatives that make a marked difference in the upliftment and betterment of our people and the communities we work in. Our primary CSI focus area is the development and support of the youth, mainly through education, healthcare and development through sport initiatives.  

When identifying corporate social investment (CSI) partnership opportunities, G4S seeks to:
Identify community projects or organisations that reflect the interests and concerns of our employees and our business.
Align projects with our core CSI focus areas of health, education, welfare and support of Africa’s youth.
Make a demonstrable difference in the lives of the people we touch. Projects must therefore be sustainable and measurable.
Opportunities must capture the hearts of our employees and customers. Active engagement and participation is key in any initiative we support.
Our CSR initiatives are aligned with our business strategy and our efforts to continually engage with customers and other key stakeholder groups.

Some of the CSR projects that Uganda has been involved with include:

Bhubesi Pride 

G4S Uganda partnered with the Bubhesi Pride Foundation, a development through sports NGO, in 2014 , 2015 and again in 2016 for a community event that unites the community through imparting life skills to include – sports (rugby), and nurturing community leaders through coaching and offering leadership consultancy. We have since participated in this event via financial support and the facilitation of this annual charity event. This partnership runs through to 2017.

Makerere 10’s Rugby
In order to ensure sustainability of our CSR projects with rugby & sports, G4S in October 2016 sponsored the Makerere Lady Impis (Makerere Nandis) Rugby Team during the rugby ten’s tournament with the aim of promoting women rugby in Uganda. The sponsorship show case G4S’s commitment to contribute to the development of communities in which we conduct business.
