We recognise that sustainability means different things to different people. For us, it's not just about the impact we have on our planet for future generations, but for the people living on it today as well. As such, our sustainability strategy focuses on two key areas where, given our business activities, we can make a real and impactful difference - reducing our carbon footprint and advancing social mobility.
Building a sustainable future
As a 120-year-old business, with family heritage at its core, we have always cared about making a difference for the long term. We are therefore proud to announce our net zero carbon target date of 2040, and to commit to deliver significant social value by advancing social mobility.Learn more

A provider of critical and essential services in organisations around the world, every day OCS colleagues set out to make the places they work safe and secure.
Our sustainability strategy
We are dedicated to adding social value wherever we operate. We work in partnership with customers, colleagues and suppliers to reduce our collective burden on the environment and we leverage our reach as a global employer to advance social mobility.
The principles guiding our approach
- Focus on the areas where our business model and operational footprint means we can make a real and tangible impact by offering practical solutions.
- Partnership is important, we will work in partnership with our stakeholders to drive our sustainability plans.
- In recognition of the fact that actions are worth more than words, we will only make authentic commitments we intend to deliver.
