This invitation only event at the Windsor Barra Hotel will bring together CEOs and financial leaders from around the world, along with key policy makers and subject matter experts.
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 (SSE) 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.
Building on previous SSE dialogues in New York (2009) and Xiamen, China (2010), this event will focus on the role of the world’s stock exchanges in encouraging responsible, long-term investment and creating sustainable financial markets.
