Global initiatives

With its worldwide operations, Deutsche Börse Group is aware of the fact that it bears responsibility on a global level. It is therefore committed to a number of initiatives around the world to promote conditions that allow a life in dignity while preserving natural resources. In doing so, we expect compliance with high standards – from our own management and employees as well as our suppliers.

Consistent with these ideals, we are a member of the United Nations Global Compact. The voluntary UN initiative is based on CEO commitments and pursues the goal of realising a more sustainable and equitable global economy. It focuses on ten principles regarding human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption. Since 2009, we have published an annual progress report on the implementation of the Compact. We have also declared our commitment to the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 by publishing a statement on its adherence to the legislation.

Furthermore, Deutsche Börse Group is committed to implementing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
