Euroclear: Our responsibility

Overview

This sustainability report is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards (Core option). It provides an overview of progress in our four Corporate Responsibility streams during the year of 2018. It also elaborates on our goals for the future in each of these areas.

Marketplace

This stream includes our long-term focus on fraud, money laundering and corruption, data protection, and cyber security. It also focusses on our work to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human rights abuse in our operations or supply chain. 

Finally, this stream encompasses our efforts to enable activities through which developing markets are opened up to international investment, thereby strengthening their overall economies to the benefit of all. It also encompasses investigations into how Euroclear may help to create a more sustainable marketplace.

Environment

This stream encompasses our focus on reducing our carbon emissions and our approach to resource use. The introduction of Science-based-Targets in 2017 demonstrates our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment in all the locations where we operate.

We have been carbon neutral since 2012 and we reduced our carbon footprint by 17% in 2018, based on a 2014 baseline.

Workplace

This stream includes our Diversity & Inclusion mission and our Employee well-being programme, as well as our Health and Safety programme, training and development opportunities and respect for the human rights of our employees.

Community

This stream encompasses our local and global community initiatives and our Matching gift scheme, with emphasis upon supporting those less advantaged in our society and those who have little or no access to financial inclusion. We also support young entrepreneurs as they make their way into the workforce and provide volunteering opportunities for our staff.
