Defining a Sustainable Future Together
Environmental, Social and Governance risks and opportunities continue to grow as organizations disclose more about their business practices and demonstrate their values through action.
We are committed to empowering market participants of all types with the information, data and tools they need to navigate the next generation of risk.
Our Industry Partners
We are committed to engaging with our industry peers on defining a sustainable future together whether we're collaborating with industry groups to set global standards, demonstrating our leadership through international organizations dedicated to making markets better, or working toward equity and inclusion through diversity-organizations.
Our Values in Action
Financial services can support society's transition to a low carbon economy, and we recognize the need to do our part. We have taken steps to reduce the environmental footprint of our direct operations and are actively participating in industry-driven organizations. To start, Cboe has offset our Scope 1 and 2 emissions with the purchase of carbon credits.
We have offset our Scope 1 and 2 emissions from 2020
Our Green Partners
Our headquarters is certified LEED Gold and we've purchased carbon credits to offset our operational emissions. We're also partnering with Climate Vault -- an award-winning non-profit founded at the University of Chicago -- to help achieve our carbon-neutral operations. In 2021, we joined forces with Land Life Company to restore degraded land in Australia and Spain in the 2022/2023 planting season.
Associate Resource Groups
Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) help us challenge bias, embrace differences and, most importantly, empower associates with the tools and resources to be their authentic selves at Cboe.
I want to play a part in fostering a workplace that welcomes and celebrates authenticity so that all of us can feel safe and valued to be ourselves and have a fair shot at realizing our fullest potential.
Our Partners in Social Good
Our sense of community keeps us connected globally and inspires us to strive for a better world. We work together with our partners to support causes that are most important to our communities.
Associate Engagement Beyond the Workplace
We are proud to report that in 2021, 88% of all associates who responded to the engagement survey would recommend Cboe as a great place to work. That's because our associates embody Cboe values not only in their work but also in their communities. Charitable donations made through Cboe's Matching Gift program increased by 33% in 2021.
Our associates have a diverse array of experiences, backgrounds and interests that inform how Cboe can continue to advance its efforts in ESG and strive to create a more sustainable future. The Associate ESG Committee evaluates how we are currently addressing ESG issues and identifies areas for continued improvement.
