Fit for 1.5º
Euronext is leveraging its ESG performance to build an impactful ESG strategy 2022-2024 embedded in the strategic plan “Growth for Impact 2024”. The new sustainability strategy focuses on accelerating climate action both in the Euronext operations and through the role it plays in empowering sustainable fi nance across all its markets. In that context, Euronext has launched its “Fit for 1.5°” climate commitment, for its own business, its partners and its clients.
ESG Reporting Guide
Access here the new edition of the ESG Reporting Guide, which has been designed to help companies engage in climate change mitigation policies with the support of their investors, and more broadly lists the key aspects to consider when reporting on ESG to make the most of the associated opportunities. This new edition has been revised with a focus on the 1.5°C global temperature increase trajectory, in line with Euronext's “Fit for 1.5°” commitment, one of the key pillars of its “Growth for Impact 2024” strategic plan.

Five material impact areas
Euronext carried out a pan-European stakeholder consultation process, to identify the ESG issues that our stakeholders believe should be our main focus.
Based on these results, we defined the key issues on which we can have the most impact in the economy, society and the environment. These key issues are grouped into five material impact areas: Our Markets, Our Partners, Our People, Our Society and Our Environment.
Each material impact area supports one or several of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), part of the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” to which Euronext has committed as an Official Partner of the Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (SSE).
The Blue Challenge is an entrepreneurship education programme, launched by Euronext in partneship with JA Europe, the largest non-profit in Europe dedicated to preparing young people for employment and entrepreneurship. The programme aims to inspire students aged 16 to 18 about sustainable finance and help them develop core competencies such as teamwork, problem solving and entrepreneurial skills.
Through this collaboration, we will be able to boost financial literacy and encourage innovation to limit Climate Change and to foster the Blue Economy amongst young entrepreneurs in nine countries: Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
International Women's Day
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This year, the United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2022: “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.
For the eighth consecutive year, Euronext took part in 'Ring the Bell for Gender Equality' — a collaboration of stock exchanges around the world ringing opening or closing bell ceremonies to celebrate International Women’s Day and promote the Women's Empowerment Principles.
Coastal Cleanup Day
From North to South, Euronext volunteers engaged during a week in the water-front clean-up initiatives, in celebration of the International Coastal Clean-Up Day and the European Sustainable Development Week.
Being the first exchange signatory of the UNGC Sustainable Ocean Principles, the conservation of the oceans, seas and marine resources, as consecrated in the United Nations' SDG 14, is a sustainable goal that is embraced by Euronext and it is dear to our community.
Euronext teams from across Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Norway, and Portugal offices rolled up their sleeves and walked miles alongside the water's edge, filling dozens of bags with trash, preventing it to end in the ocean.
