Making A Difference To Society

Corporate Responsibility

It’s the way we do business

As a company, we work hard to increase our positive impact and reduce any negative impact. It ensures good management of risks and opportunities, helps us attract and retain the best people and strengthens our corporate reputation. It means performing to the highest commercial and ethical standards and channelling our knowledge and strengths, as global leaders in our industries, to make a difference to society.


Our Vision

We are committed to making a positive impact in our industries and our communities, and attracting and retaining the very best people with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and ideas.

Performing to the highest commercial and ethical standards and channelling our knowledge and strengths, as global leaders in our industries, helps us make a difference to society.

Our Programs

Cares

 

We care deeply about positively impacting local and global communities. 

We demonstrate our commitment by providing time and financial contributions to make a difference. 

Our central focus is education for disadvantaged young people with a focus on one or more of our unique contributions.

Volunteerism remains the cornerstone of our community involvement strategy. We are committed to providing our employees with the opportunity to volunteer in their local communities.

Though our Cares program, employees are offered two days off to volunteer with non-profit organizations of their choice.

From sharing our expertise – providing charities with skills such as web development and content creation that non-profits would struggle to fund from their own budgets – to team challenge days where we work on various on-site projects for a wide range of charities, we proactively take time out to make a positive impact on our local communities.

We Care

In 2019, our employees recorded over 42,000 volunteer hours through our Cares Program. These hours include time taken before, during and after work to give back to our communities.

Working with the UN

Corporate social responsibility is vitally important to who we are as a company. Our policies are shared with our parent company, RELX, to ensure that we uphold the principles and responsibilities of good corporate citizenship.

The ADAM™ program
ADAM: Automated Delivery of Alerts on Missing children.


The ADAM Program was developed by LexisNexis® Risk Solutions associates and donated specifically to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). It helps distribute posters of missing and at-risk children across targeted areas quickly enough to be effective, sending alerts to targeted recipients within minutes. 

  • Over 180 missing children recovered - ADAM alerts can target areas within minutes, distributing over 130,000 posters a month.
  • Over 1.8 million participants - Recipients include police departments, news media, hospitals, schools, social services and private enterprises.
  • When time matters - With the ADAM program, NCMEC can deliver missing children posters the same day the child is reported missing.

On April 5th, 2011, a 12 year-old girl was reported missing from her home in Wisconsin. Law enforcement turned to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) who quickly distributed hundreds of posters of the child within a 15-mile radius of her last known location. Shortly after the poster’s release, the mother received specific information on her daughter’s whereabouts. They were reunited on April 16th.

We have a longstanding commitment to using "Data for Good," and are continuously looking for new and innovative ways to solve some of the most important problems society faces.

ADAM enhances our photo distribution efforts by rapidly distributing images and information about missing children to targeted areas. The program is a key component of our recovery efforts.
