Corporate Responsibility

Through its Corporate Responsibility (CR) programme, the Financial Times (FT) invests in projects and causes that advance literacy and education and support journalism, the environment and local communities.

The CR programme is an important part of our internal and customer communications activities. It enables us to take responsibility for the impact of our operations on customers, employees, shareholders, communities and the environment.

Our approach complements the Pearson CR programme. This also focuses on literacy and education projects, and we work closely together in these areas.



We’re committed to reducing our impact on the natural environment.
