ESG at Cboe. Environment, Social, Governance.

Our Industry Partners

We are committed to engaging with our industry peers on defining a sustainable future together whether we're collaborating with industry groups to set global standards, demonstrating our leadership through international organizations dedicated to making markets better, or working toward equity and inclusion through diversity-organizations.

Our Values in Action


Financial services can support society’s transition to a low carbon economy, and we recognize the need to do our part. We have taken steps to reduce the environmental footprint of our direct operations and are actively participating in collaborative industry-driven organizations. In 2022, to address Cboe’s emissions across Scope 1, 2, and 3, we are purchasing a diverse portfolio of carbon offsets and renewable energy certificates.

We have offset our Scope 1 and 2 emissions from 2020

Our Green Partners

Our headquarters is certified LEED Gold and we’ve purchased carbon credits to address our Scope 3 emissions. We’re also partnering with Climate Vault – an award-winning non-profit founded at the University of Chicago – to help achieve our sustainability goals. In 2021, we joined forces with Land Life Company, who has since restored 4 cumulative hectares of degraded land in Australia and Spain, a total of 3,633 planted trees, on our behalf during the 2022/2023 planting season. In 2022, we are collaborating with Carbon Streaming, a Cboe Canada listed company, that uses stream financing to scale high-integrity carbon credit projects and accelerate global climate action.

Associate Resource Groups

Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) help us challenge bias, embrace differences and, most importantly, empower associates with the tools and resources to be their authentic selves at Cboe.
