Save the Date: 7 December SSE 2020 Global Dialogue


The SSE Global Dialogue is the main global platform for establishing the direction of travel for sustainable capital markets. Held once every two years, this SSE flagship event is a unique global gathering designed to bring together chief capital market regulators, CEOs and Board members of stock exchanges and institutional investors as well as leadership from international organisations, standard setting bodies and civil society. Together, this multi-stakeholder leadership event will analyse, promote and foster stock exchanges’ sustainability initiatives. 


Attracting speakers and audience members from around the world, the 2020 SSE Global Dialogue will take place as part of the UNCTAD World Investment Forum in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Over five days from 6 to 10 December, the World Investment Forum will feature a number of events related to the work of the SSE, including special sessions with commodity derivative exchanges, impact investors and experts on the growing sustainability bonds market. The last World Investment Forum held in 2018 brought together six thousand participants from 160 countries, including Heads of State, Ministers, CEOs, heads of international organizations and civil society. 


Please save the date in your calendars now for the SSE Global Dialogue and block the entire week to take part in the World Investment Forum. Preparations are being made for our December event to go ahead but of course we will monitor the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and make adjustments to our plan as necessary. In meantime, monitor this webpage and our twitter account for latest updates.

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.
