Our approach to corporate citizenship is driven by our belief that excellence can be achieved by focusing on areas where we have unique capabilities and the greatest potential for meaningful impact. The Thomson Reuters Foundation leverages the core capabilities of our businesses to empower people around the world. For example, the Foundation’s TrustLaw program provides pro bono legal services to people and organizations around the world that have the a deep need for expert legal assistance. AlertNet and our Emergency Information Service combine our technical expertise with our news capabilities to amplify and coordinate global relief efforts. TrustMedia and Reuters Institute at the University of Oxford provide journalism training around the globe.
Across our company we hold ourselves responsible for doing business in ways that respect, protect and benefit our customers, employees, communities and the environment. The Thomson Reuters Foundation exemplifies this goal. Hear more about the work of the Thomson Reuters Foundation here from Monique Villa, CEO of the Foundation, and Tim Large, Editor, AlertNet and Emergency Information Service.
Stay tuned for our weekly feature highlighting the work of our Foundation and the many individuals around the world who work with the Foundation and those who donate their time to these important initiatives.
Actionable information must be well described, highly organized, seamlessly commingled, and easily navigable. A new initiative we’ve launched to achieve this is Content Marketplace, our new strategy to leverage our deep and broad content assets and create enabling technology and capabilities, as well as a common language of content across the company.

As Peter Marney, senior vice president of the Content Marketplace Group describes it, “Content Marketplace is founded on the firm view that our customers use not only the content we manage, but also content found on the web, that provided by third parties, customer proprietary data, and Content Marketplace is our solution for how we will bring all four sectors of content together in a seamless, interoperable way.”
In 2010, we launched new product platforms that embody The Knowledge Effect by giving our customers richer and more relevant information, delivered faster, along with more powerful tools, accessed through more intuitive and adaptable interfaces. One of those tools is WestlawNext. See more about our “Year of Delivery” in our 2010 Annual Report.

“We achieved what we set out to accomplish in 2010 – returning the company to growth after the recession, delivering new flagship products, consolidating platforms and data centers, and developing foundational assets in faster growing regions and market segments. But our performance was by no means indicative of either our ambition or our potential. With this period of heavy investment largely behind us, we have set our sights on accelerating growth in 2011 and delivering strong returns on those investments. For all the reasons discussed in this letter, we believe that the best years lie ahead for Thomson Reuters. We are grateful to our shareholders, customers and employees for their ongoing confidence and support.”
Over the course of this week we’ll bring you a series of stories in text, video and photos based on this report. This series will provide you with a unique opportunity to meet our leadership, hear about our new products, businesses and initiatives, and review our financial performance.
We hope you’ll find it an informative and engaging way to learn more about our company, and we welcome your comments and questions.
