RELX Group is a global provider of information and analytics for professional and business customers across industries. The Group serves customers in more than 180 countries and has offices in about 40 countries. It employs approximately 30,000 people of whom almost half are in North America.
We help scientists make new discoveries, lawyers win cases, doctors save lives and insurance companies offer customers lower prices. We save taxpayers and consumers money by preventing fraud and help executives forge commercial relationships with their clients. In short, we enable our customers to make better decisions, get better results and be more productive.
As part of our corporate responsibility strategy, we launched the RELX Group SDG Resource Centre. This showcases the latest in science, law, business, events and more that can help drive forward the SDGs, drawing on content from across the whole of our company and from key partners as well. The aim is to support the UN in implementing the SDGs and to broaden awareness and understanding of the SDGS for our customers, governments, researchers, companies, NGOs and individuals.
As a multinational business and signatory of the UN Global Compact, RELX Group has a role to play in advancing the SDGs. In the words of Richard Horton, editor of one of our flagship publications, The Lancet: ‘We have the content, we have the international reach. We have the ambition, we have the people, and we have an incredible capacity to innovate. We can use all of that to advocate for better policies and better action to reach these goals.’ The aim of the SDG Resource Centre is to do just that.
