Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Global Dialogue

23 Oct 2018

Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Global Dialogue

The Sustainable Stock Exchange (SSE) initiative – launched by UNCTAD, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) – is a global platform for promoting responsible investment for sustainable development. Bringing together its 70 partner exchanges, securities regulators, investors, companies and other stakeholders, the SSE Global Dialogue is the largest global gathering of stock exchange leaders exclusively devoted to sustainable development. The 2018 Global Dialogue, organized in partnership with the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), will strengthen consensus and action among capital market leaders on their contribution to sustainable development.

Issues for the debate:

  • Bringing a stock exchange perspective to the SDGs: The experience with promoting ESG transparency among listed companies and innovative sustainability-themed products (e.g. ESG indices, green bonds, etc.).
  • What is the appropriate role for regulators and policymakers and what should be left to stock exchanges, investors and issuers?
  • What practical steps are exchanges and regulators taking to integrate sustainable development into securities markets?
