The United Nations’ Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative, a peer-to-peer learning platform for exploring how stock exchanges can promote improved corporate performance on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, held its first Regional Dialogue for South East Asia in the heart of Bangkok earlier today. Co-convened by UNEP FI, the Dialogue brought together capital market leaders to tackle the most relevant and pressing sustainability topics in the region’s capital markets. In a specially recorded message to mark the occasion, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and UNEP Executive Director, Mr Achim Steiner, spoke of the invaluable contribution that the SSE can make in promoting the transition to a green economy.
