Supporting our Communities

FactSet invests in its communities globally through employees’ volunteerism around four Pillars of Service: Inspire Tomorrow's Engineers, Educate to Elevate, Protect Our Environment, and Alleviate Food Insecurity. Over the past years, we offered a fully virtual employee volunteer program by transitioning to remote mentoring and other educational support programs, as well as offering new virtual learning and engagement opportunities. Through global campaigns with strategic nonprofit partners, FactSetters achieved far-ranging impacts. During fiscal 2021, FactSet supported the community by: 

  • Assisting over 80,000 young people to gain qualifications, higher education, or employment 
  • Providing over 1 million meals to people in need 
  • Enabling the planting of over 14,000 trees

COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

Representative of our commitment to sustainable growth and operations, FactSet is a signatory of the UN Global Compact and UN PRI. The principles outlined in these initiatives guide FactSet's sustainability strategy and culture as well as the development and promotion of services that support our clients’ implementation of these principles. In addition, we submit annually to CDP and EcoVadis to communicate our own environmental, social, and economic progress and impacts. 

The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative and calls for support from companies aligned to its ten principles on human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. 

The United Nations-supported PRI consists of an international global network of asset managers, owners, and service providers working together to put responsible investment into practice.  

CDP is a global non-profit that runs the world’s leading environmental disclosure platform. CDP drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. 

EcoVadis provides sustainability ratings, enabling all businesses to reduce risk, drive performance, and improve environmental and social outcomes.
