PRESS RELEASE: London – September 27 2022 –Intertrust N.V. (“Intertrust Group” or “Company”) [Euronext: INTER] a world leader in providing specialised administration services to clients in over 30 jurisdictions, has today announced it has signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, established by the UN Global Compact and UN Women.

The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a set of seven principles offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community. Established by UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are informed by international labour and human rights standards and grounded in the recognition that businesses have a stake in, and a responsibility for, gender equality and women’s empowerment.

In 2020, Intertrust Group solidified its commitment to Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) with the creation of the D&I Charter and Council which further led to the implementation of company targets focused on creating opportunities for women within the organisation. By joining the 7000 companies which have signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, Intertrust Group has committed to continue advancing gender equality through the seven principles below:

1. Establish high-level corporate leadership for gender equality

2. Treat all women and men fairly at work – respect and support human rights and non-discrimination

3. Ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all women and men workers

4. Promote education, training, and professional development

5. Implement enterprise development, supply chain, and marketing practices that empower women

6. Promote equality through community initiatives and advocacy

7. Measure and publicly report on progress to achieve gender equality

Shankar Iyer, CEO at Intertrust Group, said: “With women making up almost half of our global colleague base, we believe that gender equity is imperative to creating an inclusive and engaged workplace. Intertrust Group is already guided by our signing of the UN Global Compact in 2020, and the Women’s Empowerment Principles offer additional resource for helping to advance sustainable development in the markets where we operate.”

“Empowering women to reach their full potential is essential to building strong economies and establishing more stable and just societies. When women are empowered, everyone benefits. I’m proud to join 7,000 other CEOs around the world in signing our commitment to advance gender equality together.”
