Corporate social responsibility

Because we can
and it’s the right thing to do


JEX is firmly rooted in the Rotterdam soil

We are part of the neighbourhood in which we work. We are at home in the city that gives us the chance to grow and be successful. Others deserve that chance too. That’s why we give back to society.

We take corporate social responsibility seriously

For us, it’s not just a tick in the box or a bullet point to put in an annual report. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is about making a real difference in the lives of others. Because we can. Because it’s the right thing to do. Not because it benefits us, but because it is necessary.

With our CSR policy, we support initiatives that align with our core values

We’re not afraid to take action when others stand by

We put our energy into what we think is important

We enjoy collaborting and building meaningful relationships

We are not only there for others, but also for each other

This commitment is evident in our talent development and leadership development programmes, as well as in our diversity policy. At JEX, everyone is important and equal. We do not discriminate. We have diversity networks for different groups.  

From LGBTQI+ to Muslims and Christians. 

Want to exchange a public holiday such as Easter Monday for a day off for Eid al-Fitr? No problem. In need of a moment of spiritual contemplation? Our prayer room is open to all. And would you like to do something for others? We give you a day off from work to volunteer. You can use it to help others. Rather donate money? That is also possible, we support various initiatives employees can contribute to. 



In addition to running our own JEX Foundation, we collaborate with various organisations. With only one goal: to help where we can.

MBO Rijnland

JEX organises an annual event for MBO Rijnland, a school in the Netherlands that provides vocational education. With this initiative, JEX helps to inspire young people who are starting their educational paths. And students get a taste of how things work in the business world.


In addition to our ongoing partnerships we also love making a social difference with occasional projects.

JEX Foundation

Help us build a better future. Look here to see how you can contribute

Because CSR is so important to us we have established our own JEX Foundation. This is how we turn our words into actions and help those who need it most: underprivileged children.

In Rotterdam, the JEX Foundation is working towards a city where opportunity knocks for all  and dreams take flight. It starts with simple but important things: a good breakfast, a healthy hot meal, a peaceful night’s sleep.

To achieve this, the JEX Foundation works with aid organisations and schools in Rotterdam. We want to make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of kids in Rotterdam who never eat breakfast or have to sleep in a crowded bed.
