To fight climate change effectively, innovative finance solutions are required to support climate-positive projects and promote more climate-aware corporations. By innovating new climate-aligned products, services and rules, exchanges and their regulators can assist their markets in becoming more climate resilient and better positioned to attract investment in climate action and protect long-term investors from climate and transition risks. Exchanges and their regulators are important levers to help financial markets increase the availability of climate-related information; they can create options for pricing carbon emissions and financing climate action through Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCMs); or they can assist in the transition of their markets to a net zero world through rules, standards and education. 

During this session in partnership with IOSCO, we will discuss the climate-related work being undertaken by exchanges and their regulators. This will include:

  • The challenges and opportunities for innovative new climate-linked markets and green finance products. 
  • The tools exchanges are innovating to boost the quality and quantity of climate disclosure. 
  • The specific targets exchanges are developing to contribute to a Net Zero future. 

Speakers in this session will include IOSCO Board Members, SSE Partner Exchanges, standard setters and other market participants.
