Charity & Donations
The social commitment is an important part of EEX Group’ daily actions. “Giving back” is the motto which underlines social actions for local organizations and initiatives on a regular basis.
EEX Group actively supports primarily local projects through donations - in line with the motto "think globally, act locally". EEX has been supporting “Zukunft für Kinder e.V.” since 2018. With the help of an internal fundraising campaign, donations were also collected together with Deutsche Börse Group for projects which were in need of donations due to the measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic:
„The past year underlined the necessity of supporting local projects and initiatives which has been affected by the global pandemic.
At EEX Group, we are furthermore delighted to support children, young adults and people in need. Therefore, for the third year in a row, we supported the organisation "Zukunft für Kinder e.V.", which takes care of socially disadvantaged children and young adults.“
Communications & Marketing
As a global company, employees of different gender and gender identity, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity work within the EEX Group.
Our goal was and still is to strengthen the appreciation, recognition and inclusion of diversity within EEX Group. We want every colleague to be equally valued and supported. Over the last year, we did several campaigns regarding the topics of Diversity & Inclusion.
This is an ongoing process, that every individual colleague should be working on day by day. For this process it is important to stay open-minded, learn from each other and appreciate the people around us. Together we follow the path of Diversity and share our experiences and perspectives within EEX Group.
EEX continues to be active as a signatory of the “Charta der Vielfalt“. This employer initiative serves to promote diversity in companies and institutions. The aim is to create a prejudice-free working environment. With its signature, EEX is part of 3,800 companies which have committed themselves to appreciation and equality of all employees.
