Amman Stock Exchange joins Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative

The Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) expressed its commitment to promoting socially and environmentally responsible business and sustainable investment by joining the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative as a Partner Exchange. ASE is the 49th stock exchange to partner with this initiative which works with capital market leaders and policymakers to create sustainable and transparent capital markets.

It's worth mentioning that the SSE is a peer-to-peer learning platform for exploring how exchanges-in collaboration with investors, regulators, and companies-can encourage sustainable investment and enhance corporate transparency, and ultimately performance, on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues. The SSE is convened by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the UN Global Compact, the UN Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).  www.sseinitiative.org
