The webinar took place on 21 October, from 12:00 to 13:00 (CEST).
Stock exchanges are uniquely positioned to advance climate disclosure through market guidance. They can support consistency and standardization of information that enables both local and global progress in climate reporting and use of climate-related data. Stock exchanges’ infrastructure, networks and experience can contribute to addressing climate change via capital markets. Working with and learning from their peers, can play an essential role in achieving climate-resiliency of our markets.
A newly published UN SSE Model Guidance on TCFD adoption, assisting exchanges’ markets to implement the TCFD recommendations, as well as a new Action Plan, showing how exchanges can lead by example to make markets more climate resilient, are going to be the foundation for the session’s discussion round.
The UNCTAD World Investment Forum (WIF) is the pre-eminent global platform for investment and development. The Forum devises strategies and solutions for global investment and development challenges.

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.
