Stock exchanges can play a crucial role in the innovation of financial solutions that bolster climate-positive initiatives and the promotion of climate action among companies. Through the development of climate-aligned products, services, and rules, exchanges hold a pivotal role in enhancing the climate resilience of their markets. Exchanges also assume significant importance in facilitating the adoption of new climate-aligned standards and the dissemination of climate-related information across financial markets. Exchanges can contribute to the transformation of markets towards a net-zero future by implementing guidelines, benchmarks, and educational initiatives.

Key topics to be addressed include the role of exchanges in: 

  • Helping align climate-related disclosures to global standards, including providing bespoke guidance and training to their issuers.
  • Innovating new climate-aligned products and services such as Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCMs).
  • Ensuring green finance products (like green bonds) better serve the financing needs of emerging markets.
  • Supporting the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero and using their market influence to accelerate the transition to net zero emission economies.
