We have a responsibility to do business in ways that respect, protect and benefit our customers, employees, communities, suppliers and the environment.
Being responsible and ethical is part of our heritage and is fundamental to our business. This is reflected globally, across every part of our operations and is core to our purpose and values.
Living our values
Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion is an integral part of the way we do business. Our combined approach – which encompasses corporate responsibility, diversity and inclusion and sustainability – seeks to empower sustainable growth for our people, our markets and our world.
For our people
Building an inclusive workplace isn’t just a nice-to-have at Thomson Reuters, it’s part of what we do every day. In order to build innovative products, grow in new markets, and serve our diverse customer needs and solve their challenges, we know that embracing diversity is key.
We have employee-led networks across the globe to connect with opportunities in the diversity, volunteering and environmental spaces. Our annual Power of Us conference, which engages employees in Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion, reached 30 countries in 50 events.
For our markets
Making the most of our products and services, and using our intelligence, technology and human expertise to lead the discussions on some of the world’s greatest sustainability challenges is a major opportunity for Thomson Reuters.
Our thought-leadership site, Sustainability, not only brings the latest content from Reuters and external partners, but also provides additional perspectives from our customers and leaders of the future who reflect on the challenges and opportunities in the space. We’re proud too of the numerous ways in which our products are helping our customers make informed decisions around risk – from supply chain to investments fueled by transparent data.
For our world
Supporting the communities in which we operate and managing our environmental impacts are things we continue to invest in. Our responsibility as a global employer is great, as are the opportunities to ensure we’re building a business in a sustainable world.
We have reduced our carbon footprint by nearly 8 percent in three years, and we continue to identify how we can make further reductions in this area by working closely with our suppliers and partners.
Continued investment in our communities, both through our 118,549 hours of employee volunteering in 2015, and our $1.8 million in matching gifts and “dollars for doers” programs, is producing significant impacts where our employees live and work by supporting the causes they are most passionate about. Additionally, our flagship Community Champion Awards program celebrates group volunteering activities, where employees identify needs in their local community and run funded volunteering programs alongside partner NGOs.
