Corporate Sustainability Reports
Sustainability is extremely important to us and, as a graduate with London Stock Exchange Group, you can expect to play an important role in supporting our charitable partners in the local communities where we operate.
Choosing responsible, sustainable growth
We want our employees to be proud to work for London Stock Exchange Group, and our global clients and partners to feel pride in being associated with our brand. It’s vital, therefore, that we continue to uphold our responsibilities by growing in a sustainable and responsible manner.
Supporting our communities, locally and globally
As we grow our business and expand our global reach, we work hard to give back to our local communities and to provide support to our partner charities around the world.
As a Group, we have a clear strategy in place for supporting the people in our communities, both in the UK and overseas. At the heart of this mission is the LSEG Foundation, which has charitable partnerships in place in each of the regions where LSEG has major operations.
We also have a thriving global partnership with UNICEF, whom we are currently working with to support the Zambian Girls 2030 programme. This exciting initiative aims to transform the lives of 11,000 adolescent girls by improving access to education and providing internship and mentoring opportunities. Employees across LSEG offices are regularly updated on the programme’s achievements, and two winners of the CEO Award for their exceptional support to the Corporate Responsibility agenda have been invited to visit Zambia and assess the impact of the project on the ground.
Our people are the driving force behind the Group’s charity and sustainability strategy. Around the world, LSEG employees from all areas of the business are making positive contributions to our local communities.
Across LSEG, employees are allocated two days a year to spend time outside the office volunteering with our partner charities or taking part in fundraising activities. For example, employees of LCH, our Group’s clearing business in the UK, have been volunteering through the Magic Breakfast campaign to provide healthy breakfasts to more vulnerable school children in Tower Hamlets, London.
Graduates have become a vital part of the charitable life of the Group in recent years. From volunteering and community work, to charity sporting events, there are countless opportunities for our new joiners to be involved. Each year, LSEG graduates play a lead role in organising the prestigious Touch Rugby in the City tournament in partnership with Harlequins F.C. The tournament raised more than £80,000 for good causes in 2017 alone.
