As a FTSE 250 listed business on the London Stock Exchange, JTC is committed to its ESG and CSR programmes to make the communities in which we work and live in a better place. By encouraging an employee-led approach to the Group’s charitable fund raising and donations, our people, wherever they are based, help create a more sustainable and equitable JTC world.
In 2021, JTC launched its first global employee-led educational charity fundraising initiative known as ‘Maximising Potential’, which benefited a range of educational charities across Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, and Africa.
We chose to focus on education because over the last few years, our analysis showed that the most employee-championed category for charitable donations from our JTC Supports budget was children. Taking this into consideration, and with statistics from the United Nations showing that there’s an estimated 617 million children and adolescents around the world who are unable to reach minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics as a result of Covid-19, this represented a clear opportunity for all of us to work together and make a difference in a key area.
As a result of the ‘Maximising Potential’ initiative, over £86,000 was shared across charities chosen by the JTC office network spanning more than 20 jurisdictions. The donations were used to support specific regional initiatives and projects undertaken by the educational charities, which were selected by the employees in those locations.
Guided by the principle that we are ‘stronger together’, we believe in the enormous power we can have as a community. We look to support charity initiatives which provide direct opportunities for JTC team engagement, participation or increased well-being by offering financial and logistical administration assistance. Additionally, we recognise the important partnerships we have with our clients and intermediaries and, where possible, also look to make a contribution to their chosen causes.
With thousands of employees across global locations, we’re proud to support a large and diverse number of very worthy causes and here’s how we’ve been getting involved, giving back and supporting brighter futures…
