Our Responsibility

Securitas USA follows practices that utilize local resources to the greatest extent possible and recognize accountability for the environmental impacts of our activities.

We select from and train qualified local applicants as security officer employees, qualify suppliers to support local office operations, and partner with each of our clients regarding their sustainability initiatives.

Both diversity of the workforce and respect for the environment(s) in which we operate are reflected in our Securitas Group corporate governance guidance and Code of Conduct.

Our people are the most important component for delivering value to our clients; they truly make the difference. We understand the combination of nature and culture present in every client workplace and country in which we provide service. This interplay of nature and culture underlies our sustainable development initiatives which deliver benefit to local communities in which we serve and society in general.

Client Facing Initiatives
Securitas USA works with each of its clients to help assure the security services’ team meets goals just as an internal department or business unit of the client does. For example, our security service teams qualify alongside their client counterparts in all initiatives regarding quality, sustainability and the environment.

Environmental Sustainability
Although we are not a producer of finished goods that rely on consumption and/or conversion of raw materials, we have initiated internal value chain program goals which benefit us and our clients.
