Our ESG mission

We are fundamentally committed to a mission of sustainability at a corporate, cultural and policy level.

Our ambition is to expand a sustainable pan-European business connectivity network together with our employees, customers, partners and other stakeholders in order to improve (cost) efficiency and speed within this network, and to further reduce the carbon footprint. Our core business supports large and small companies to generate economic benefits in an environmentally responsible manner as we aim to dematerialize documents and processes. Moreover, as a technological innovator we hold ourselves accountable for unifying our business communities and serving our customer’s needs, so they can thrive whilst still allowing them to comply with their legal obligations. Equally, we aim to be a large global employer where people are eager to work, develop their skills and achieve an optimal work-life balance. Diversity in gender, age and nationality is embedded into our company governance and a given in our workforce. This allows our people to maximize their potential and ensures that we can offer a high quality network to our business community.

In short, we aim to maximize the impact we have by focusing on a twofold dimension of our sustainability drive: as a facilitator of economic sustainable growth, and as an employer.

As it is our core business to create a sustainable financial ecosystem across borders, digitalization and innovation are key for our company and its growth
strategy.

costs within this network. This allows our customers and partners to create value without having to deal with the administrative burden
