At the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE), CSR is a natural and integral part of the overall business strategy and the company’s operations. With the slogan “Always in motion”, LuxSE works towards long-term goals that bring value to all stakeholders, while at the same time, contributing to making capital markets more sustainable.
2020 underscored the need for LuxSE to slightly adapt its CSR Strategy. In times of crisis, the market player wanted to stay true to its mission and corporate purpose to serve as a force for resilience, adaptability, innovation and change, always seeking to ensure that CSR is fully integrated into its business model. LuxSE had to quickly rethink its CSR activities and priorities.
Nonetheless, the CSR goals and activities structure have remained built around four core pillars (think PEOPLE, think BUSINESS, think COMMUNITY and think PLANET) aligned with LuxSE’s vision and corporate values. Through these four pillars of sustainability, LuxSE contributes directly to 9 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
LuxSE has released its Sustainability Report for the year 2020 in order to present its progress on its Corporate Social Responsibility strategy and latest activities. Curious to know more? Download the LuxSE Sustainability Report 2020 in full here.

Over the last few years, LuxSE has been actively involved in the fight against climate change. By taking daily actions towards a more sustainable economy and promoting sustainable investments at both national and international levels, LuxSE has played a key role in contributing to a sustainable development compatible with the environment. With the objective of making finance part of the solution, LuxSE has created and developed several successful sustainable products and services.
The transition to a more sustainable economy has led to a significant increase in investor demand for transparent and comprehensive data on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects. As part of its efforts to promote transparent capital markets, LuxSE has published a set of comprehensive guidelines for reporting on ESG aspects. LuxSE’s Guide to ESG Reporting constitutes a comprehensive and solid roadmap for companies, issuers and asset managers on how to best integrate ESG considerations into their business decisions, strategies and operations.
