The security sector is increasingly recognizing the importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards in fostering sustainable growth and responsible business practices. ESG is a set of criteria used by investors and stakeholders to evaluate a company's environmental, social, and governance performance, which is now considered an essential aspect of responsible investing. ESG promotes the efficient use of resources, fair labor practices, diversity and inclusion, ethical business conduct, and environmental stewardship. As a leading security services provider in Ontario, Security Guard Group (SGG) is committed to incorporating ESG principles into our operations, ensuring that we contribute to environmental sustainability, social sustainability, and sustainability development.
