Our communities

Our communities

We’re committed to making a positive impact in our communities – not just in business. This focus guides how we engage with our employees and how we support the communities around us. Here’s some examples of how we contribute.

Creating a truly inclusive culture

We understand that diversity of thinking, perspectives and backgrounds is critical to our success. But they are also essential to the type of company we want to be and the environment we want to create – helping to support a sustainable future and wellbeing for everyone. Our global inclusion networks across race, gender and sexuality provide a supportive and dynamic space to share ideas, boost representation and aid collaboration. We continue to create new initiatives to improve the way we work, giving people more control over how and when they work.

The LSEG Foundation

As we grow our business and expand our global reach, we work hard to give back and contribute to the communities in which we operate. At the heart of this aim is LSEG Foundation, established in 2010 to be the single channel for the Group’s charitable giving and a focal point for staff engagement with charities. Since 2010, the Foundation has donated over £10 million ranging from global and regional partner charities to local charities identified by our colleagues in their communities. LSEG Foundation’s core mission is to empower people and enrich communities in alignment with our Group’s strategy of encouraging growth and expanding opportunities. It focuses on projects that help young and disadvantaged people reach their full potential by developing life skills and business acumen.

Supporting sustainable markets around the world

We know we have an important role to play in creating sustainable, trusted markets. That’s why we’re forging partnerships to support the development of local markets around the world, helping domestic economies to advance and flourish. And with initiatives like the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (SSE), we’re working with local exchanges, governments and regulators to support less developed countries and emerging economies.
