Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility
“For VERMEG, being a responsible market player lies at the heart of our human adventure and the very essence of the engaged software company we aim to be for all of our stakeholders.
As a key player in the financial services industry, our mission is to offer the best solutions available, to advise and support individuals, businesses and institutions in the development of their projects and to ensure a positive long-term impact on the business, social and environmental world around us.
Since the beginning, I have strived to engage the company and all employees in initiatives directed towards improving life and society. Our values – Committed, Ingenious, Authentic – and our Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility set VERMEG apart as a radically different human adventure.
In 2016, we pursued our determined approach by deciding to drive our whole ecosystem forward, sustainably, involving every one of our employees, in every country where we operate, in making VERMEG exemplary in everything it does. To achieve our goal, we initiated the “Empowered by VERMEG” program, reaching all the way through to the highest levels of the company, in order to build, steer and measure the fulfilment of our commitments.
It is my firm belief that VERMEG must stand out in the market as much for its collective intelligence and knowhow, as well as for the demonstration of values and ethics that unite and make our day-to-day actions meaningful. As you will discover, VERMEG demonstrates that in concrete terms and ranks as a leading financial player in Europe for its achievements as a responsible publisher.
VERMEG is wholly committed in robust and responsible action for the service of our clients. That commitment relies with all of us, and on our exemplary behaviour both individually and collectively. I am convinced that VERMEG’s leadership model, driven by our employees’ capacity to be empowered and built on our solid values, will further strengthen our position as one of the world’s most responsible IT firms.”

Statement of Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking
- Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
- We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labor, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
- This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.
VERMEG joined the ” United Nations Global Compact “, in June 2018 to support its environmental & societal component.
Thus, VERMEG commits to apply the 10 fundamental principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environment, fight against corruption and to communicate annually on the progress made.
