In order to achieve the SDGs and move the world to a more sustainable pathway, it is important to work with derivative exchanges as a key leverage point for establishing critical risk hedging and pricing instruments and standardized products that embed sustainability principles.

This multi-stakeholder session — jointly organized by the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative and the World Federation of Exchanges — brings together key derivatives exchange actors and industry participants to assess what is happening currently and to address opportunities and challenges for incorporating sustainability considerations into derivatives markets more broadly.


The webinar took place on 19 October, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm (CEST).



Embedding sustainability into Derivatives


The session also features discussions of the joint SSE-WFE report on How Derivatives Exchanges can Promote Sustainable Development with a focus on supporting the further development of derivatives that embed sustainability principles. Exchanges and market participants will benefit from discussions on the opportunities and challenges involved in including sustainability considerations in the derivatives ecosystem.
