How securities regulators can support the SDGs
Who’s behind it? – UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE)
How can it help? – This report by the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative examines how security regulators can take action within their mandates on sustainability-related risks and opportunities. The report presents an action plan centered around five areas: 1) facilitating investment; 2) strengthening disclosure; 3) clarifying duties; 4) strengthening governance; and 5) building capacity. These are bolstered by supporting umbrella actions on collaboration, standards, sharing, roadmaps and analysis. The publication highlights why the SDGs are important for securities regulators, and presents 35 examples across a variety of contexts where regulators can deliver on their mandate.
The SSE initiative is a partnership of UNCTAD, UN Global Compact, UNEP FI and Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
