Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative Presents Action Plan for Regulators to Support SDGs (IISD)

Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative Presents Action Plan for Regulators to Support SDGs (IISD)

The 2007-2009 global financial crisis demonstrated that securities regulators play a critical role in economic stability. The lead up to that crisis also showed that “innovative” securities and “sophisticated computer programmes” may not be relied upon for prudent risk assessments. With increased economic impacts of climate change, securities regulators have added yet another item to their agenda: reducing systemic risks stemming from environmental and social pressures. Regulators understand that issues identified in the SDGs can create financially material risks and opportunities for investors and may affect the resilience of the financial system as a whole.
