SSE Global Dialogue postponed due to Covid-19

27 October 2020

As a result of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SSE flagship Global Dialogue, scheduled for 7 December 2020 in Abu Dhabi, will be postponed pending further notification. The decision to delay the event was made due to ongoing disruption to international travel, government restrictions on conferences and exhibitions remaining in place throughout the remainder of 2020. Held once every two years as part of the UNCTAD World Investment Forum, the Global Dialogue is designed to bring together chief capital market regulators, CEOs and Board members of stock exchanges and institutional investors as well as leadership from international organizations, standard setting bodies and civil society. Please monitor the events page of this website and the SSE twitter account for the latest updates as we are exploring alternative ways to engage with our key stakeholders via webinars and other online activities.

About the SSE

​The SSE initiative is a UN Partnership Programme organised by UNCTAD, the UN Global Compact, UNEP FI and the PRI. The SSE’s mission is to provide a global platform for exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, companies (issuers), regulators, policymakers and relevant international organizations, can enhance performance on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage sustainable investment, including the financing of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SSE seeks to achieve this mission through an integrated programme of conducting evidence-based policy analysis, facilitating a network and forum for multi-stakeholder consensus-building, and providing technical assistance and advisory services.
