GEO’s Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility


  • For the last three decades, The GEO Group has partnered with government agencies throughout the United States and around the world to deliver private-sector solutions to meet public-sector challenges.
  • The annual publication of our Human Rights and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report is an important step in furthering our commitment to providing transparent and comprehensive ESG disclosures and metrics.
  • Each annual report builds upon the previous report, and incorporates updated disclosures and metrics for each calendar year based on recognized ESG reporting standards, related to the development of our employees; our adherence to ethical governance practices throughout our company; and our efforts to advance environmental sustainability in the construction and operation of our facilities.
  • The annual Human Rights and ESG Report also highlights our continued commitment to improving the lives of those entrusted to our care by providing enhanced rehabilitation and post-release support services through our award-winning GEO Continuum of Care (CoC) program.
  • We recognize the continued interest from our diverse stakeholder groups in learning more about our company, and we welcome an ongoing engagement with our stakeholders as our company continues its ESG journey in the future.
