Euroclear 'Our Responsibility' report cover page

We are pleased to announce the publication of our 2023 sustainability report: Our Responsibility 2023. This is the last report that we will publish according to the Global Reporting initiative (GRI) standards, as in 2024, we will be reporting following the requirements of the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Directive (CSRD), and our sustainability statements will be incorporated into the 2024 Annual report.

During 2023, we published our group ESG Policy and made progress against most of our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) KPIs.  In addition, our near and long-term Net Zero targets were approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).  Euroclear also attended COP 28,  where we were able to discuss how Financial Market Infrastructures (FMIs) such as Euroclear are not only crucial to the functioning of financial markets and the stability of the financial system but can also encourage a greater supply of sustainable investment opportunities by reducing key barriers to issuance.

Our focus in 2024 will be on preparing for the reporting requirements of the CSRD, revising and implementing new D&I, community and well-being strategies, developing and implementing our Net Zero Transition Plan, and reviewing our KPIs.
