The Sustainable Stock Exchanges 2014 Global Dialogue

The Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) 2014 Global Dialogue was held on 14 October 2014 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva as part of UNCTAD’s 2014 World Investment Forum. The SSE Global Dialogue is the initiative’s biennial flagship event. It provides a unique, high-level platform to explore how the world’s exchanges can work together with investors, regulators, and companies to create more sustainable capital markets.

The SSE 2014 Global Dialogue was a 3.5 hour talk-show-style, high-level roundtable that stimulated unscripted discussion among the speakers without presentations or speeches. The moderator, well-known business reporter of BBC News, Ms. Tanya Beckett, facilitated a fast-paced and interactive dialogue. It featured over 30 government regulators, CEOs, and other high-level stakeholders with representatives of 10 of the largest 20 stock exchanges in attendance.

Held every two years, the SSE Global Dialogue is designed to bring together the key players in the field to analyze, promote and foster communication on stock exchanges’ sustainability-related activities. They are designed to demonstrate stock exchanges’ progress, while highlighting challenges and opportunities ahead. A core purpose is to facilitate the sharing of experiences that encourage exchanges and their regulators to enhance listing rules and/or regulatory initiatives to include the disclosure of sustainability strategies by listed companies.
