Lessons learned - G4S’s sustainable Journey
Addressing the audience, Willescroft identifies three key lessons he has learned from G4S’s sustainability journey:
- Focus on the critical aspects of the business
- Find the sweet spot between investing time effort and resources, to drive both sustainability and business outcomes
- Leverage data to make informed decisions
