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.

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.
