A vital way of delivering our purpose in the community and wider society is through the LSEG Foundation. Working with charity and NGO partners, we will deliver a range of programmes across the globe, creating opportunities for those in need to participate in education, employment and enterprise.
The LSEG Foundation delivers its mission by focusing on three key strands of activity:
- Fund: engaging a small portfolio of organisations, selected to deliver economic empowerment programmes across the world, through multi-year strategic partnerships.
- Engage: providing grants to a range of regional and locally selected charities, tackling the issues that matter most in the communities where we operate. We encourage LSEG’s employees to support the Foundation’s work through matched fundraising and by using their two volunteer days to give their time and skills to our charity partners or other causes that matter most to them.
- Convene: funding a select number of non-commercial initiatives which unlock the power of finance to drive positive sustainability outcomes. This could include, for example, funding leading academic analysis to accelerate sustainable finance or developing global sustainability standards and infrastructure.
