10 Jun, 2021

This is an invitation only event. For more information, please contact the SSE team.

The UN SSE Consultative Group Quarterly Calls allow Partner Exchanges, regulators, investors, issuers and other key market stakeholders to share their experiences, hear from guest experts and contribute to the SSE’s work plan. Held quarterly, the SSE webinar is organized twice in one day to accommodate the many time zones of our partners.

The Q2 2021 webinar featured the launch of a new free training program on climate disclosure, designed by the UN SSE, IFC and CDSB and it was an opportunity to discuss:

  • What are the TCFD recommendations and why is climate disclosure important? 
  • Who is the target audience for the course on climate disclosure and how can exchanges ensure their market receives free training? 
  • What are the details of the course plan?  
  • When can you receive this training in your market?

The SSE 2021 Q2 Call will take place on 10 June 2021 at 09:00 and 16:00 Geneva Time. This is an invitation only event for members of the SSE Consultative Group. If you are interested in joining the SSE Consultative Group please contact us at info@SSEinitiative.org

Summary and Presentation

Opening remarks and an overview of the agenda were provided by the SSE. The SSE team welcomed the Bermuda Stock Exchange to its membership and the Nicaragua Stock Exchange as an official member. There are now 107 SSE Partner Exchanges.

The speakers for the webinar were welcomed and the SSE began with a brief presentation on of the Climate Disclosure Training. The program is new free training designed by the UN SSE, IFC and CDSB. The training program has a focus on implementation of TCFD recommendations manly design for issuers and preparers of sustainability reports in companies, delivered in collaboration with exchanges. The training is a continuation of the SSE work on the upcoming Model Guidance and Action Plan (to be launched on the 29 June). The “two legs” of market education are guidance and training. The climate disclosure training will complement the new SSE guidance documents and build on expertise from IFC and CDSB.

Course Content overview, in brief there are three course modules:

  • TCFD 101 provides an overview of what climate-related reporting is and why it is important
  • TCFD 102 provides an in-depth program during which participants will peer-review each others’ TCFD reports and wider good practice.
  • TCFD 102E allows all participants of TCFD 102 to continue their dive into the climate disclosure universe through a self-taught e-learning experience.

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.
