Energy Reduction – Fleet
In order to provide our customers and their communities with a safe and secure environment, we utilise a fleet of approximately 22,000 vehicles, including security patrol vehicles, prisoner escort vehicles and armoured cash transportation vehicles. It is this fleet that produces some 61% of our carbon emissions and where we focus our primary efforts to reducing our energy consumption.
Since 2009, we have been introducing a range of fuel efficiency measures into our fleet management, from real-time monitoring of driver behaviour and eco-driver training to investing in new technologies such as solar cells to power ancillary systems, stop-start systems and vehicle replacement programmes to introduce lighter and more efficient alternatives G4S’ Retail Cash Solutions technology results in 40-60% fewer journeys by cash transportation vehicles saving on fuel costs and helping reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
Energy Reduction - Buildings
Around 34.3% of our carbon emissions are generated by the energy and fuel consumption from these buildings and so we continually carry out a series of replacement programmes to implement lower energy environmental solutions wherever possible.
