Jefferies Issues 2024 Sustainability Report

Advancing Jefferies’ sustainability and diversity efforts remain core to our values, with over $22 million in charitable contributions and expanded scope of emission offsets last year

Jefferies Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: JEF) announced the publication of our 2024 Sustainability Report, which can be viewed here. Our report highlights how Jefferies’ team of driven professionals is advancing key initiatives related to sustainability and diversity that strengthen the many global communities in which we live and work.

Rich Handler, our CEO, and Brian Friedman, our President, commented: “This report shares the many ways we continued to make progress this past year in support of the principles of ‘long-termism’ we have always prioritized for the benefit of our employees, clients, investors, bondholders and other stakeholders. Although there is always more to do, we are inspired by our team’s relentless commitment to supporting sustainability. We hope you take some time to read about how that commitment translates into action.”

Among the highlights from Jefferies’ 2024 Sustainability Report are the following:

  • Over $22 million was donated by Jefferies, our employee-partners, and clients in support of over 445 charities, organizations and nonprofits, including those providing humanitarian aid and support to the Maui wildfires and Israel.
  • Our top-ranked global Sustainability and Transition Strategy Team engages with clients across this dynamic and important area for corporate and financial services, including through a wide range of dedicated expert panels, fireside chats, and other thematic events. In 2023, over 14,000 client touchpoints were facilitated through 180 unique events relating to ESG globally.
  • We disclosed our Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and measured seven categories of Scope 3 emissions. We purchased renewable energy credits (RECs) to address emissions associated with grid electricity and carbon offsets to mitigate our remaining Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.
  • We engaged Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), a nonprofit organization committed to advancing racial equity, to help us enhance our ongoing efforts to increase diversity at Jefferies.
