In September 2020, LuxSE launched the LGX DataHub, a centralised database of structured sustainability data now covering 11,000 green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds listed worldwide. The LGX DataHub allows investors and asset managers to better understand and compare the environmental and social impact of different securities and thereby make more informed and sustainable investment decisions.  

In 2022, LuxSE entered into an MoU with UN Women to advance gender finance and has since flagged gender-focused bonds on LGX to make it easier for investors to identify debt instruments which contribute to women’s empowerment and gender equality objectives.
