Environmental target to reduce emissions

Securitas is the first global security company to have its environmental target validated by Science Based Targets initiative.

Securitas’ environmental impact is relatively small, and we are reducing it further by creating more sustainable future security solutions through an extensive modernization and digitization of the business. As a leader in the industry, committing to the Science Based Targets initiative is a natural next step for us.

Focus on reducing emissions

Securitas has committed to reduce absolute scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions with 42 percent by 2030 from a 2022 base year. This ambitious target aligns with the 1.5-degree goal set by the Paris Agreement. We have reported our CO2 emissions through CDP for many years and have now increased the reporting to cover all relevant categories in scope 3. The security industry is not one of the larger emitters, but we still want to be part of the solution and contribute to make our world a more sustainable place.

Environmental policy with three goals

Securitas also has an environmental policy for its operations, which focuses on three overall goals:

  • Reduce the company's negative climate impact, particularly with respect to energy and transportation
  • Avoid using environmentally hazardous substances and work to replace such substances with more environmentally friendly alternatives, even if this results in a higher cost for the company
  • Contribute to recycling processes and ensure waste is handled in a safe, environmentally friendly manner

A basic requirement is that we follow all prevailing laws, international agreements and other regulations that impact our operations.

Local environmental initiatives

Securitas also implements local initiatives to improve its environmental performance. For example, opt for video conferences rather than business travel whenever possible, change to renewable energy for heating or cooling of offices, recycle paper and other materials and use web-based manuals, process descriptions and training documents rather than printed materials.

Securitas a participant in CDP

Securitas has reported to CDP, a global reporting system for climate change, since 2011. In 2023, Securitas received a score of C. The average score for companies the peer group Commercial and consumer services is C, as is the global average score for all companies in the CDP climate change program. This score is based on an evaluation of the company's activities in the areas of climate change, adaptation and transparency.
