Euronext is prepared for investors taking ESG criteria into consideration in their investment strategies and has developed a suite of innovative solutions for listed companies through its Corporate Services offering. The ESG Advisory services are tailor-made and allow issuers to reach new investors by clarifying their ESG strategy for capital markets and building their ESG profile with relevant reporting and improved administration. The suite also offers additional services including digital tools for virtual roadshows and remote control, contributing to enhancing the investor relations and board management experience and reduction of the environmental impact from business travel.
The European exchange introduced a set of guidelines on ESG reporting for issuers in the beginning of the year. The instructions draw on UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative recommendations and are designed to help listed companies structure their approach to ESG. Through FESE, Euronext has initiated a collective European task force to agree on common ESG measurement and reporting standards across all European exchanges.
Stéphane Boujnah, Euronext CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board, commented:
Today is an important milestone in executing the ESG roadmap of our three-year strategic plan ‘Let’s Grow Together 2022’. Euronext can significantly advance the European sustainability agenda through its unique role in financing the real economy, connecting local economies with global capital markets. Our ESG product strategy ensures investors can deploy their capital efficiently and transparently to support high-impact projects and companies. Furthermore, we are proud to be the first stock exchange to endorse the UN Global Compact’s nine Ocean Principles. Protecting our oceans and supporting marine conservation will be vital to repairing our ecosystems and bolstering the Blue Economy.
