Welcome to Euroclear’s 2019 ‘Our responsibility’ report.
This third edition, developed in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, explains how we have continued to implement our Corporate Responsibility vision.
In 2019, we continued to build on the foundations we had laid down over the previous years. Growing focus on Environment/Social/Governance (ESG) topics has propelled areas such as climate risk into the foreground and allowed us to start building momentum in all four of our streams.
This stream also 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. This section includes our ongoing investigations into how Euroclear may help to create a more sustainable and equitable marketplace.
We have been carbon neutral since 2012 and we reduced our carbon footprint by 7.7% in 2019.
