Our culture and values

Our values

Our corporate values are encapsulated in the word REACH: this is about stretching ourselves, going the extra mile, excelling at what we do. Reaching out also means extending our hand; reaching out to others, breaking down the silos to be the best we can together.

Respect

Our diversity stimulates thinking and creativity. We treat each other with respect and trust. We listen to clients and colleagues. We express and consider dissenting views.

Effective

We do only what matters for clients and adds value to the company. We use our resources and each other’s time efficiently.

Accountable

Over and above our personal contributions, we are committed to the end result and take the initiative to do what is needed. We do what we say. At all times, we are courageous and honest.

Client First

We are proud to provide the right solution for our clients. We are proud to deliver what we promise.

Helpful

Across teams, divisions and locations, together we drive success by helping each other, learning from our mistakes and sharing ideas and solutions.

Our responsibility

Euroclear takes its commitments to Environment/Social/Governance (ESG) topics seriously – corporate responsibility is part of our DNA. We have a strong ESG  framework, focused on helping to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. As a Financial Services company, we feel that we have a role to play in helping to create a more equitable and fair society and we strongly encourage our people to become involved in the many initiatives that contribute to this goal.

At Euroclear, we put a strong focus on Diversity & Inclusion. We’re a multinational company, with offices all over the world and over 80 nationalities – 50% of whom are women. We recruit from all walks of life and all kinds of backgrounds. We are strongly in favour of creating an environment that is supportive and inclusive of everyone, no matter what their race, gender, sexual preference or physical or mental ability. We’re really convinced that a company thrives only if it truly appreciates the different skills and perspectives that its people can offer.

The well-being of our people is critical to us. Especially in the context of Covid-19, we are aware that physical and mental stress can sometimes prove overwhelming. That’s why we provide a comprehensive and targeted well-being programme, fosusing on all aspects of a healthy lifestyle. We pay special attention to providing flexible work arrangements and training and development and we are currently looking at how we can adapt our working environment to be fit for the future.

We have been carbon neutral since 2012 and have since introduced Science-based-targets, aiming to reduce our carbon footprint by 36% by 2024, based on our 2014 baseline. In 2018, we banned single use plastic from our offices and we are constantly looking for ways to help tackle climate change, both internally and externally.
