LexisNexis Corporate Responsibility

Be a part of something bigger

Around the world

LexisNexis and its employees worldwide care deeply about adhering to the highest standards of behavior so that customers, suppliers and the global community continue to recognise us as an open, honest and principled organisation. Dedicated to corporate responsibility, LexisNexis works collaboratively to improve the lives of others in our local and global communities, to champion ethical corporate behavior and business practices, to minimize the company's environmental footprint and to provide a positive workplace environment.

Responsible Business Practices

LexisNexis believes that good governance is essential for the success of its business. Not just a legal requirement, it is an important business practice that increases shareholder confidence, employee morale and the public impression of our company. We support and uphold the principles and processes of good governance in our corporate values, in our strictly enforced code of ethics and in the manner in which we conduct our business worldwide.

Communities

LexisNexis South Africa believes that community giving is both an opportunity to play a positive role in both our global and local communities and our responsibility as a good corporate citizen. Part of our many LexisNexis Cares activities in 2008, included working with communities in KwaNdengezi in KwaZulu Natal, the Boitshoko centre in Johannesburg and the Saartjie Baartman center in Cape Town. Our Durban and Pietermaritzburg office worked in the KwaNdengezi community where we erected a boundary fence, cleared land, renovated a building, prepared and provided lunch for the community and donated items of all kind.

Environment

We recognise that our energy, water and paper consumption; generation of waste; manufacturing and packaging; utilization of print and production technologies, and transportation have an environmental impact. To reduce our negative impact, we will be using a 2008 baseline to reduce our waste, CO2 emissions, energy and water consumption in 2009. To achieve this goal, an environmental policy is being created and implemented. Our policy will be in accordance with all relevant legislation and regulation, but most importantly, it will highlight the passion and respect we have for our environment.
