Empowering People. Enriching Communities.
As we grow our business and expand our global reach, we work hard to give back and contribute to the communities in which we operate. At the heart of this aim is LSEG Foundation, established in 2010 to be the single channel for the Group’s charitable giving and a focal point for staff engagement with charities. In 2020, LSEG Foundation donated over £4.9 million, significantly higher than in 2019 and in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
LSEG Foundation’s core mission is to empower people and enrich communities in alignment with our Group’s strategy of encouraging growth and expanding opportunities. It focuses on projects that help young and disadvantaged people reach their full potential by developing life skills and business acumen. LSEG Foundation has charitable partnerships in place in all the communities in which the Group has a significant number of employees. Partnering with local charities helps LSEG Foundation to make a long-lasting impact on the communities in which it operates. We are able to spread our support across the world through our regional committees.
Recognising the importance of volunteering, LSEG provides every employee with two paid volunteering days each year and with local volunteering programmes offered by local charity partners. Every employee has the opportunity to enrol in our matched giving scheme when taking part in fundraising initiatives. We’re proud that our people and our communities are the driving force behind our Group’s charity and sustainability strategy
