SSE Model Guidance on Reporting ESG InformationThe new project builds upon the successful SSE campaign for ESG disclosure. In September 2015 when the SSE launched its Model Guidance for exchanges, only 14 stock exchanges around the world were providing guidance on reporting environmental, social and governance (ESG) information for their markets. Today 55 stock exchanges have published such guidance. More information can be found in the SSE ESG Guidance Database which contains a comprehensive list of all stock exchange ESG guidance documents in the world and includes an analysis of major ESG reporting instruments referenced in stock exchange guidance documents.

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.
