In today’s world, many big businesses and organizations have been put under pressure from several stake holders to engage in social and environmental responsibility and G4S is among those companies. Brands are in today’s world being used by stakeholders as hostage because associating a brand with irresponsible activities can have a notable effect on the brand value.
