The Mongolian Agricultural Commodity Exchange Joins the UN SSE Derivatives Network
12 July 2022
Derivatives exchanges partner with the SSE on sustainabilityThe SSE was established by the UN Secretary General just over a decade ago and has grown from its original five founding members to over one hundred exchanges. Since its founding, the SSE has worked with stock exchanges, securities regulators and other equity market actors to identify a range of opportunities for exchanges to take action in support of sustainable development goals. From 2021 the SSE began admitting derivatives exchanges as members. The SSE has expanded its existing exchange database to incorporate what derivatives exchanges are doing to advance the sustainability agenda. The creation of the derivatives network recognizes the importance of aligning all aspects of financial markets with more sustainable outcomes and the next step in the SSE’s evolution.

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.
