Implementation of the Global Compact principles in the company

In corporate governance and day-to-day business, Deutsche Börse Group implements the ten UN Global Compact principles in a variety of ways. We have, for example, introduced instruments – mainly fundamental decisions, guidelines and products – which ensure compliance with the individual principles. Some instruments span multiple areas for action in our corporate responsibility strategy and thus cover several Global Compact principles at once.
