The GEO Group, Inc. published its fourth annual Human Rights and Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) report.

The report includes enhanced disclosures related to our Board oversight of human rights and ESG matters, employee diversity and training programs, corporate governance, and environmental sustainability, including updated metrics and statistics for the calendar year 2021, under the new Universal Standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

The report also highlights GEO’s continued commitment to providing enhanced rehabilitation and post-release support services through our award-winning GEO Continuum of Care® (CoC) programme. During 2021, our CoC facilities delivered approximately 2.8 million hours of enhanced rehabilitation programming. 

The CoC programme integrates enhanced offender rehabilitation, including cognitive behavioural treatment, with post-release support services to address the basic community needs of released individuals, including housing, transportation, food, clothing, and job placement assistance.

GEO’s Executive Chairman, George C. Zoley, said: 

“The publication of our fourth annual Human Rights and ESG report highlights our continued commitment to respecting human rights and improving the lives of those entrusted to our care. Our Board committee structure has been expanded to include two new committees. One dedicated committee to oversee Criminal Justice Rehabilitation and Human Rights matters, and another dedicated committee to oversee Cyber Security and Environmental Oversight matters.

"We also recently undertook a Human Rights Due Diligence Assessment. The results of this due diligence assessment have been incorporated into this year’s ESG report. Moving forward, we expect to evaluate additional human rights initiatives, including a future review of our Global Human Rights Policy and its implementation.”
