Liberum and the SDGs
We integrate environmental, social and governance considerations into our decision making and strategy to be a company that operates within the ecological ceiling. As part of our day-to-day operations, we aim to achieve five of the UN Sustainable Development Goals that are applicable to our business and its broader societal role.
Liberum is committed to supporting the wellbeing of its employees, recognising stress as damaging to an individual’s health. The appropriate support and consideration is given in situations where work-related stress is identified and we have trained Mental Health First Aiders in our London office.
Our Workplace Wellbeing calendar details all the upcoming events and sessions that employees can join during their working day. These are offered by Vitality, our Health Provider, and range from yoga classes to HIIT sessions to mindfulness classes.
At Liberum we want our employees to develop their skills and have an impactful career. We offer regular staff training and mentor programmes to foster a nourishing educational environment. Liberum does not see a university degree as an essential criterion of a good employee, and we are proud to offer apprenticeship programmes with on-the-job training.
Liberum has an equal pay policy and promotes gender equality both within the industry as a whole and as a company. Liberum also has an enhanced paternity and maternity leave policy in place.
Liberum believes that decent and fulfilling work improves self-worth and individual wellbeing. This should be accessible to all. The promotion of agency, individual thinking and security at Liberum produces a more efficient and fulfilled workforce.
As an employer we recognise our responsibility in our employees’ wellbeing at home and at work. We believe our policies and business practices guide conduct and ensure the wellbeing of our employees.
Operationally Liberum has a relatively small carbon footprint and we continue to take active measures to further reduce our environmental impact. We recognise the risk climate change poses and support the transition to an energy-efficient global economy. Since 2020, Liberum has been carbon neutral.
