Our Approach

Pursuing for the highest ethical standards
in every aspect of our work.

­
Our Values

Bringing customer-driven innovation to life
with our core values.

Diversity and Inclusion

The company employs approximately 10,000 people who serve customers in more than 175 countries around the world. As a global organization, we value people of all cultures, nationalities, races, religions, and ethnicities, regardless of characteristics such as gender, gender identity and/or expression, age, disability, or sexual orientation. We are committed to promoting a diverse workforce and we strive to create a work environment that respects individuals and their contributions, and fosters innovation.

Diversity of people and ideas creates strength for our business and customers. We are passionate about attracting, retaining and developing the most talented and skilled individuals, regardless of background. We encourage our people to work across functions, geographies and cultures as one company.

Recently, our parent company, RELX Group, signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, a joint initiative of the UN Global Compact and UN Women, which aims to help companies empower women and promote gender equality. In the year, we mapped out existing practices relative to the WEPs.

We promote Employee Resource Groups, which enable diversity to be expressed in meaningful ways. They are independent, voluntary networks of employees who share common interests. The groups help drive diversity initiatives, community involvement and promote career development through mentoring, workshops, leadership speakers and external networking.

Environment

Reducing our environmental footprint and inspiring others to do the same

LexisNexis Legal & Professional, a part of RELX Group, has a positive impact on the environment, principally through the information we produce which informs debate, aids decision makers and encourages research and development. We also have an impact through consumption of natural resources such as energy, water and waste generation, through our direct operations, supply chain and customer use of our products and services. We are committed to reducing any negative environmental impacts, while continually improving our environmental performance.

We assess, prioritize and mitigate environmental risks as part of our overall risk management process. In addition, our Global Environmental Policy applies to all areas of the business and is supported by a global Environmental Management System (EMS), aligned with the ISO 14001 environmental standard.

It outlines our obligation to “manage the environmental risks of our activities” and stipulates that “environmental risk is part of the overall risk assessment which business units are required to complete on an annual basis.” It indicates that we must consider, among other risks, those that require legislative compliance; have significant cost implications for the business; and which may affect our reputation.

Our network of Environmental Champions, together with colleagues throughout the business – including those from Communications, Finance, Legal, HR, IT, Procurement and Real Estate – as well as external stakeholders such as NGOs and investors, help with advice, ranking and tracking of our environmental risks and opportunities. They are reviewed during Environmental Checkpoint meetings, chaired by the CFO.
