One of the “World’s Best Sustainability Ideas” - Forbes Magazine
Named by Forbes magazine as one of the “World’s Best Sustainability Ideas” and a finalist for the 2011 Katerva Sustainability Award, the Sustainable Stock Exchanges is an initiative aimed at exploring how exchanges can work together with investors, regulators, and companies to enhance corporate transparency, and ultimately performance, on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage responsible long-term approaches to investment.
The SSE is co-organized by the United Nations Global Compact Office, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative.
