On Tuesday 14 October 2014, the 4th biennial Sustainable Stock Exchanges Global Dialogue took place at the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.  The initiative’s flagship event, the Global Dialogue brought together CEO’s of stock exchanges, companies and institutional investors, alongside high-level policy makers and capital market regulators. This unique gathering offered a global platform to demonstrate leadership and understanding of the sustainability-related opportunities and challenges facing the capital markets today.

The SSE 2014 Global Dialogue was a 3.5 hour talk-show-style, high-level roundtable designed to stimulate unscripted discussion among the speakers without presentations or speeches. The moderator, well-known business reporter of BBC News, Ms. Tanya Beckett, facilitated a fast-paced and interactive dialogue to a televised audience in Room XVIII of the Palais des Nations.

Held every two years, the SSE Global Dialogue is designed to bring together the key players in the field to analyze, promote and foster communication on stock exchanges’ sustainability-related activities. Stock exchanges will demonstrate progress, while highlighting challenges and opportunities that can benefit from policy innovation. Market participants share experiences which can assist exchanges and their regulators in their efforts to better incorporate sustainable development into capital markets.

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.
