The ‘Zero Draft’ brainstorming webinar took place on Monday 20 July 2020 at 09:00 and 16:00 Geneva Time.


Webinar Summary


The United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative hosted a webinar meeting of the SSE Derivatives Exchanges Advisory Group to discuss the role of derivatives exchanges in promoting sustainable development. The meeting brought together exchanges, regulators, and investors in order to review the zero draft of a new report on how derivatives exchanges can promote sustainable development. The SSE held two webinars to accommodate the many time zones of all members of the Advisory Group. In total there were 42 participants joining from 19 countries around the world, including representatives of 21 derivatives exchanges. 

The discussions were moderated by CME, the Chair of this Advisory Group, who walked readers through the zero draft and facilitated lively discussions among the group about how the paper should further develop. Members of the SSE Advisory Group expressed a need for more action among exchanges to evaluate the current sustainability-related developments and create new practices and products that will promote sustainable development. The Advisory Group highlighted the importance of the SSE project for assisting exchanges by informing broader international discussions about how derivatives products can foster sustainability.  

Speakers on the call included representatives from: ABM Amro, ASX, Bloomberg, BSE, Euronext, FIA, HKEX, ICE, LME, Tadawul, SGX, and others.

Next Steps 

Based on the inputs of this Advisory Group, both during the meeting and in subsequent written comments, the SSE will produce another iteration for comment to be circulated to the Advisory Group in September. Following that we will have one more final comment period before we finalize the document and publish it in December 2020.

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.
