United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges Global Dialogue

The United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative hosted its fifth Global Dialogue in Singapore, which brought together stock exchange CEOs, institutional investors and companies along with Singapore’s Minister of the Environment and Water Resources, H.E. Masagos Zulkifli. During the event, the SSE released its 2016 Report on Progress. With 59 exchanges partnering with the SSE initiative, over 70% of listed equity markets have made a public commitment to advancing sustainability in their market. Other key figures include that 12 stock exchanges require ESG reporting as a listing rule, and 11 list green bonds.
