An agenda to be actioned
At Spectrum Markets, we believe sustainability is not just an agenda to be discussed, but an agenda to be actioned.
We built our business on the pillars of transparency, fair access and integrity, our vision being to create a better future for retail trading. Sustainability has informed and will continue to inform the way we shape our business. And as we grow, we commit to working together with senior stakeholders, employees, the trading community and local communities towards a better future for all.
Our commitment does not stop there - we are using the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a global blueprint to achieve a better and sustainable future for all as a framework for our Corporate Social Responsibility. The goals address 17 global challenges from ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being, promoting full and productive employment to fostering innovation. It is our intention not only to create a better way for retail trading, but also a better place to work for our employees, a better partnership with our members and a better world for the communities around us.
SPECTRUM MARKETS SUPPORTS THE U.N. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Using the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework, we have carefully selected 3 goals to support at launch, that are close to our business and operations: focusing on healthy lives and promoting well-being, ensuring full and productive employment and decent work and our take on developing quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure for all.
WE'RE TAKING ACTION FOR:
Goal 3: Good health and well-being

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure

Our partnership with Sightsavers moves us closer to achieving the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals
Spectrum Markets is driven by a desire to create A Better Way – a desire which goes beyond just bringing change to the markets. We’re committed to building a fairer world for the communities around us, emboldening those communities to grow stronger and more prosperous.
Visual impairment affects 2.2 billion people globally. Of these people, at least 1 billion have a vision impairment or blindness that could have been prevented or is yet to be addressed. This burden weighs disproportionately on marginalised communities and underdeveloped countries.
So, we've partnered with Sightsvers’ Nigeria Childhood Blindness project to provide access to eye health services and tertiary eye health facilities for children with visual impairment. The project will also work with the national government to strengthen the provision of paediatric eye health services.
